7
Multi-angle DLS

8
Fixed angle DLS Cuvettes: Malvern nanozetasizer 90

9
Detector/ Correlator- Computer Correlator-Computer correlates fluctuations in intensity at angle due to the Brownian motion of the macromolecules. An intensity autocorrelation function g (2) (t) is calculated and its decay with time gives us the diffusion coefficient D
