The Applications of Light Scattering

Volume 25, Number 5 (Oct. 1971) Page 509-516

Gravatt, C.C.

Light scattering provides information concerning the size, shape, number, and time dependence of the physical nonuniformities of a system. Measurements of the scattered intensity as a function of both scattering angle and wavelength describe static properties, whereas the spectral distribution of the scattered radiation is related to time dependent phenomena. The applications of light scattering are discussed, including critical phenomena, molecular weight determination, air pollution analysis, and diffusion phenomena.
