February 12th, 2024 | Dynamic Light Scattering Workshop

February 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

February 12th, 2024 | Dynamic Light Scattering Workshop

Join us Monday, February 12, 1-4 PM

The California Nanosystems Institute at UCLA and Wyatt Technology are pleased to co-host a free, one day dynamic light scattering workshop on February 12, 2024. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about new advances in DLS theory, applications, and extended characterization. There will also be a question and answer period, lab hardware/software overview and experimental design.


1:00 PM Wyatt Presentation: DLS Theory, Applications, and Extended Characterization
2:00 PM Q&A and Break
2:30 PM Lab: Hardware/Software Overview and Experimental Design

Location: CNSI 5th Floor Presentation Room

Event Overview:
Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is a light scattering measurement that measures the diffusion behavior of nanoparticles and macromolecules and is a valuable rapid screening tool for size, aggregation, and interaction parameters. This event will review the theory behind DLS and how to apply the theory practically to nanoparticle analysis.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • How size, size distributions, and polydispersity are measured with DLS.
  • How fitting and binning impacts DLS results and appropriate model selection.
  • How to extend DLS to measure interaction parameters, thermal stability, and viscosity.
  • Best practices for conducting DLS experiments with nanoparticles.
  • DYNAMICS software tips and tricks.
