Instrumentation for Turbidimetry and Nephelometry

Turbidimetry and nephelometry are two techniques based on the elastic scattering of radiation by a suspension of colloidal particles: (a) in turbidimetry the detector is placed in line with the source and the decrease in the radiation’s transmitted power is … Continue reading

Elastic Scattering of Light From Particles

Elastic scattering is divided into two types: Rayleigh, or small-particle scattering, and large-particle scattering. Rayleigh scattering occurs when the scattering particle’s largest dimension is less than 5% of the radiation’s wavelength. The intensity of the scattered radiation is proportional to … Continue reading
