Application of Electro-Optics to the Study of Colloids

The first steps in electro-optics were made in the field of colloid science. This is not surprising, since for many of the optical phenomena, both the largest effects and the slowest effects can be achieved most easily by colloids. This greatly simplifies the experimental problems. Therefore, it is astonishing to see that at present the application of electro-optics to colloids is relatively unutilized with respect to its application to biological macromolecules. However, we might expect that in the near future the relative importance of the electro-optics of colloids, biological colloids being largely included, could grow considerably.
