The Journal of Electrical Engineering featured a study entitled “Determination of Particle Shape and Size Distribution of Model Types of Nanomaterials” conducted by Edita Bretšnajdrová, Ladislav Svoboda and Jiří Zelenka. Brookhaven’s NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer and XDC were both used in this study as to determine the parameters in preparing various nanomaterials used in the fields including electronics, medicine and paint.

The NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer was used for particle size distribution measurement. This laser diffraction technique used was based on the principle that particles passing through a laser beam will scatter light at an angle related to their size. For particle size measurement, Brookhaven’s XDC was used, allowing measurements to be made either through a centrifugal or a gravitational field.

Both instruments were important to determine the effect of silica concentration on zeta potential and particle size. The study showed that the type of silica particle stabilization influenced behavior of colloidal solutions during dilution.

Accurate dynamic light scattering analysis and zeta potential measurements provide an in-depth look at nanoparticles, helping researchers attain significant findings for their research. To ensure precise results, researchers only use high quality instruments. Brookhaven Instruments carries equipments that are technologically advanced, easy-to-use and effective, including the NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer and XDC.
