Wyatt Technology hosts the 24th International Light Scattering Colloquium, November 3-4, 2014 in Santa Barbara, CA. This year’s theme is “Light Scattering in the Nano World.”
The program will include presentations by five leading experts on nanotechnology and the characterization of nanoparticles by light scattering:
- Sir Harold Kroto
1996 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, awarded for the discovery of buckminsterfullerene (C60).
"Carbon in Nano and Outer Space"
- Prof. Paul Russo, Hightower Chair in Biopolymers, School of Materials Science and Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
"Light scattering measurements of anisotropic polymers and colloids"
- Dr. Vincent Hackley, Nanomechanical Properties Group, National Institute of Standards and Technology
"Nanoparticle Metrology and Standards Development – Why Good Measurements are Critical for Enabling Commerce and Reducing Risk in an Emerging Technology"
- Dr. Frank von der Kammer, NanoGeosciences Division and the Nanoparticle Analysis Laboratory, University of Vienna
"FFF-MALS-ICPMS Methods for the Analysis of Nanomaterials in Substances and Products"
- Prof. James Baker, Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine and Biological Sciences, University of Michigan
"Advancing nanoparticle platforms into clinical trials"
Wyatt scientists will present educational lecture/demos on the latest in light scattering instrumentation. A round table session will offer a productive venue for small group discussions.
The full agenda with presentation titles will be posted soon, so check back!
