Abstract

Photon correlation spectroscopy autocorrelation spectra were measured for gold nanocrystal superlattice colloids under several intensities of an incident laser beam. Thermal blooming in the colloid shifted the correlation spectra toward smaller times. A second cumulant term in the fitting curve proved effective to correct for the thermal blooming effect to yield the correct particle size.
