Real-Time Monitoring of Nanoparticle Growth During Crystallization and Synthesis through Spatially Resolved Dynamic Light Scattering
Spatially Resolved Dynamic Light Scattering offers new opportunities to monitor the growth of nanoparticles in real time. The fast data acquisition allows monitoring of particle size and particle size distribution every 5 to 10 seconds.
Different measurement configurations can be applied to monitor particle size formation during crystallization or synthesis, since it is possible to measure a wide turbidity range in static and flowing suspensions. Combination of the simultaneously obtained backscatter intensity with particle size information allows distinguishing between particle growth and particle aggregation.
