The Zetasizer Nano - simple & versatile light scattering system

The Zetasizer Nano is the world's most widely used light scattering system, for measuring size, zeta potential and molecular weight. Applications range from characterizing high concentration colloids and nanoparticles, through to measurement of proteins and macromolecules in their native state, requiring as little as 12 microlitres of sample. The Zetasizer Nano can be used for the comprehensive characterization of proteins, colloids and nanoparticles, and is simple to use, highly sensitive, versatile and fast! This videos shows how quickly and easily a measurement can be made on the Zetasizer Nano.

The Characterization of Nanoparticle Element Oxide Slurries Used in Chemical-Mechanical Planarization by Single Particle ICP-MS

| Contributed by Perkin Elmer

This study outlines the quantitation and characterization of element oxide nanoparticles (Al2O3, and CeO2) commonly used in the nanoelectronics and semiconductor fabrication industry for the chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP) of semiconductor surfaces.
