A study featured in the Journal of the Australian Ceramic Society dubbed “Assessment of Particle Sizing Methods Applied to Agglomerated Nanoscale Tin Oxide (SnO2)”, analyzed Tin Oxide using four different particle sizing techniques. Among the particle sizing instruments used was Brookhaven Instruments’ NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer.
The NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer was one of the two instruments that used the dynamic light scattering (DLS) principle, which is also known as photon correlation spectroscopy (PCS) or quasi-elastic light scattering (QELS). The NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer obtained the smallest value among the gathered data because of the wide scattering angle capability of this instrument. Gathered results from this study varied depending on the instrument used, which the researchers concluded was due to the nature of the non-spherical agglomerates and the morphology of which the sizing units were not designed.
Brookhaven Instruments has a number of top quality particle size analyzers, including NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer that incorporates the requirements for fast, routine, sub micron measurements.
