Holographic characterization of individual colloidal spheres' porosities

Fook Chiong Cheong, Ke Xiao, David J. Pine, David G. Grier

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Holograms of colloidal spheres recorded through holographic video microscopy can be analyzed with the theory of light scattering to measure individual spheres' sizes and refractive indexes with part-per-thousand resolution. This information, in turn, can be interpreted to estimate each sphere's porosity.
