For the first time, this year’s ILSC will be open to all rather than exclusively to Wyatt’s customers.

For the first time, this year’s ILSC will be open to all rather than exclusively to Wyatt’s customers.

Wyatt Technology Corporation has announced that this year’s International Light Scattering Colloquium (ILSC) will focus on the latest developments in the application and characterization of manufactured and environmental nanoparticles using light scattering techniques. With the theme of “Light Scattering in the Nano World”, ILSC 2014 will be held in Santa Barbara, CA on November 3-4. For the first time, this year’s ILSC will be open to all rather than exclusively to Wyatt’s customers. Registration is available at www.wyatt.com/ILSC.

Wyatt Technology is honored to welcome Sir Harold Kroto, who shared the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded for the discovery of fullerene (C60).  Kroto’s keynote speech, entitled "Carbon in Nano and Outer Space", will discuss the serendipitous discovery of C60 as well as insights into the future challenges of nanotechnology.

Attendees will also hear from the following leading nanotechnology and nanoparticle characterization experts:
•    Prof. Paul Russo,  Georgia Institute of Technology
“Light Scattering Measurements of Anisotropic Polymers and Colloids”
•    Dr. Vincent Hackley,  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, University of Vienna
“FFF-MALS-ICPMS Methods for the Analysis of Nanomaterials in Substances and Products”
•    Prof. James Baker, University of Michigan
“Advancing Nanoparticle Platforms Into Clinical Trials”

Geofrey Wyatt, President of Wyatt Technology looked ahead to the event, “ILSC 2014 will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to hear from leading experts about current trends in nanoparticle technology and applications, as well as to discover the latest light scattering and separation technologies available for their characterization. We are committed to delivering cutting-edge analytical instruments that deliver the accurate and comprehensive results nanoparticle researchers need for their increasingly demanding applications, and these solutions will be showcased at the event. By opening the event beyond the elite group of Wyatt users, we hope to provide benefit to the wider scientific community through education and the exchange of ideas and innovations.”

While the characterization of nanoparticles can be a complex and challenging process, Multi-Angle Light Scattering (MALS), Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) and Asymmetric-Flow Field Flow Fractionation (AF4) provide powerful, solution-based size and shape measurements based on absolute analyses, independently of calibration standards. The program includes educational lectures and demonstrations by Wyatt Technology scientists. Round table sessions will be held on a number of different nanoparticle topics to facilitate informal yet highly productive exchanges.
