New Custom-built Facility for Holographic Characterization
Automated Particle-Resolved Colloidal Characterization
- Analyzing in-line holograms of colloidal particles yields particle-by-particle measurements of particle radius, ap, with 1 nm precision and refractive index, np, to within a part per thousand.
- No other technique offers such a wealth of characterization data.
- Using microfluidics to amass single-particle statistics yields model-independent population distributions that are useful for developing novel syntheses and controlling reactions.
