Accurate characterization using static light scattering (SLS) and dynamic light scattering (DLS) methods mandates the measurement and analysis of singly scattered light. In turbid samples, the suppression of multiple scattering is therefore required to obtain meaningful results. One powerful technique for achieving this, known as 3D cross-correlation, uses two simultaneous light scattering experiments performed at the same scattering vector on the same sample volume in order to extract only the… Expand
Investigation of moderately turbid suspensions by heterodyne near field scattering.
HNFS represents a technically simple but powerful method to investigate samples that are moderately multiple scattering and is confirmed by a comparison with results from a far field cross-correlation instrument that suppresses multiple scattering contributions. Expand

Multiple-scattering suppression in dynamic light scattering based on a digital camera detection scheme.

Dynamic light scattering in turbid colloidal dispersions: a comparison between the modified flat-cell light-scattering instrument and 3D dynamic light-scattering instrument.
A modified flat-cell light-scattering instrument is upgraded for DLS measurements by the installation of an optical single-mode fiber detector in the forward scattering regime and it is shown that 3D-DLS and FCLSI only have a comparable performance if the length of the light path in the sample using the 3D -DLS is reduced to a minimum.
