Abstract

We have used dynamic light scattering to make in situ measurements of flame-synthesized silica particles. Unlike many of the common Mie-scattering techniques, the technique used here does not rely on the absorption of light by the particles. This technique is, therefore, especially advantageous for the measurement of silica and other particles with real refractive indices. The dynamic-light-scattering technique has the additional advantage of being insensitive to particle optical properties.
