The method of cumulants is a standard technique used to analyze dynamic light-scattering data measured for polydisperse samples. These data, from an intensity-intensity autocorrelation function of the scattered light, can be described in terms of a distribution of decay rates. The method of cumulants provides information about the cumulants and the moments of this distribution. However, the method does not permit independent determination of the long-time baseline of the intensity correlation…

Particle sizing by dynamic light scattering: non-linear cumulant analysis

This work revisits the method of cumulants for analysing dynamic light scattering data in particle sizing applications and analyses, by both linear and non-linear methods, computer-generated data with realistic 'noise', where the parameters of the distribution can be set explicitly.

A New Robust Estimator of Polydispersity from Dynamic Light Scattering Data.

A new estimator of particle size polydispersity for dynamic light scattering data, which quantifies the relative width of the intensity-weighted distribution of diffusion coefficients, which is successfully applied to real data from colloidal particles, microgels, and polymer solutions.

Determining the size and size distribution of nano-spheres by dynamic light scattering and cumulant method

Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is one of the most powerful methods for determining size of nano-spheres. One of the advantages of this method is determining size distribution of particles. The method

Direct determination of the number-weighted mean radius and polydispersity from dynamic light-scattering data.

It is found that results from fits using number distributions are angle independent and that converting intensity-weighted distributions is not always reliable, especially when the polydispersity of the sample is large.

Multipolarization Dynamic Light Scattering of Nonspherical Nanoparticles in Solution

Application of dynamic light scattering (DLS) for sizing of non-spherical nanoparticles using copolarized and cross-polarized components of the scattered light is limited by the difficulties of

Multi-angle dynamic light scattering analysis based on successive updating of the angular weighting.

A novel successive updating of the angular weighting (AWSU) method is proposed that not only improves the accuracy of the weightings, but it also contributes directly to the PSD recovery by reconstructing the ACF with thePSD obtained by the weighted inversion.

Nanoparticle size measurement from dynamic light scattering data based on an autoregressive model

The letter puts forward a new method of nanoparticle size measurement using small amounts of data on a dynamic light scattering signal, and establishes an arithmetic model based on Burg arithmetic.

Information-weighted constrained regularization for particle size distribution recovery in multiangle dynamic light scattering.

An information-weighted constrained regularization (IWCR) method is proposed in this paper and applied in multiangle DLS analysis for bimodal PSD recovery and it appears that the IWCR method can improve the recovery resolution for closely spaced bIModal particles.

Analysis of Macromolecular Polydispersity in Intensity Correlation Spectroscopy: The Method of Cumulants

The first order electric field correlation function of laser light scattered by polydisperse solutions of macromolecules can be written as a sum or distribution of exponentials, with decay rates

Studies of Vesicle Extrusion

Studies of vesicles made by the extrusion of lipid suspensions through the pores of polycarbonate membranes as a function of the concentration of the lipid suspension and of the average pore size of the membranes show that the applied pressure, rather than the flow rate achieved, determines the size of vESicle produced.
