Detectors measure intensity as a function of scattering angle and derive particle size based on Mie scattering theory.
Furthermore, as the diameter of the particle approaches the wavelength, Rayleigh light scattering loses importance and Mie scattering predominates (7).
Mie scattering occurs when the scattering particles are approximately the same size as the wavelength of light.
