Abstract

Multiangle dynamic light scattering (MDLS) can provide better results for particle size distribution (PSD) determination than single-angle dynamic light scattering. Proper analysis of MDLS data requires data from each measurement angle to be appropriately weighted according to the intensity scattered by the particles at each scattering angle. The angular weighting coefficients may be determined by measuring the angular dependence of the scattered light intensity or estimated in various ways. In either case, any noise on the weighting coefficients will adversely affect the PSD determination. We propose a new iterative recursion method for estimating the weighting coefficients and demonstrate its effectiveness for recovering PSDs from both simulated and real experimental data. The new method gives better PSD results than those found using other weighting estimates.
