The new Ultrasizer SV (small volume) uses acoustic spectroscopy
technology for particle size measurement in concentrated systems from 10nm to 1,000[micro]m.
Whereas optical spectroscopy allows scientists to probe the molecular bonds and atomic electrons of a sample's molecules, acoustic spectroscopy
is typically more concerned with the bulk physical properties of the sample medium.
Among the technologies to be utilized are Raman and FT-IR spectroscopy, x-ray spectrometry, acoustic spectroscopy
, chemical imaging and electrochemistry techniques.
