A Quasi-Elastic Light Scattering and Cinematographic Investigation of Motile Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii
In this presentation motile Chlamydomonas reinhardtii cells are shown to yield functions whose decay times are inversely related to the translational speed of the cell. This conclusion is based on a comparison of experimentally determined functions obtained over a range of scattering angles with functions calculated using the assumption that the cells behave as translating Rayleigh-Gans-Debye (R-G-D) particles. The swimming parameters obtained from the light scattering experiments were consistent with those obtained from high speed cinematography.
