A new angle on dynamic depolarized light scattering: number-averaged size distribution of nanoparticles in focus

Author affiliations

Abstract

Size polydispersity is a common phenomenon that strongly influences the physicochemical properties of nanoparticles (NPs). We present an analytical approach that is universally applicable to characterizing optically anisotropic round NPs and determines directly the number-averaged size distribution and polydispersity via depolarized dynamic light scattering (DDLS). To demonstrate, we use aqueous suspensions of Au NPs of different sizes and surface functionalization.
