Depending on the sample and the instrument model, the direct tracking of particles is possible in a size range starting at 10 nm for gold nanoparticles and correspondingly higher for particles with less scattering power. Thus, providing the sample is stable and does not sediment or float, the zeta potential upper size limit can be 20 pm and 3 pm for particle sizing.
Interactions among Kirchhoff fields and complementary fields to generate the scattering power given in Equation (24).
This unique ability potentially allows the user to probe whether nanoscale drug delivery structures such as liposomes vary in their contents: Empty liposomes may have a lower RI (light scattering power) than those loaded with a higher RI material.
It occurs due to the inhomogeneous distribution of the scattering power for a particular reflection (see Figure 2).

In this work, further information about the progress of the crystallization process was obtained taking into account the evolution of the long period, L, scattering power, Q, and degree of crystallinity, [X.sub.c], with crystallization time at different crystallization temperatures (312, 318, and 321[degrees]C).
The higher scattering power of engineered pigments enables greater substitution.
Q, the scattering power of the specimen along the machine direction is calculated as:
Using a measurement called scattering power, which takes into account the number of electrons per unit volume as well as the absolute size of the sample, the researches calculated that their samples were several orders of magnigtude smaller than the tiniest crystal previously observed, he says.
