Center:  SMCL
Location: B18 Engineering Hall

Brookhaven Laser Lightscattering system is capable to perform both Static (SLS) and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) measurements as a function of the scattering angle set by the goniometer. The temperature of the sample is user-controllable. The sample cell is surrounded by index matching liquid to reduce stray light.
