Nanoparticle Size Analysis

The typical definition of a nanoparticle is a particle with a size between 1- 100 nm. The term has been defined this way in both ISO standard 27687 and ASTM standard 2456-06. In the EU the definition is more clouded because of the wording used concerning that about 50% of the number distribution should be between 1-100 nm.

Dynamic light scattering (DLS) remains the most popular particle size analysis technique for nanoparticles. The Nicomp DLS system is used in many industries to measure the size of nanoparticles, both in the lab and online in the process environment.
