Light Scattering from Micellar Solutions—Proposal for a Light Scattering Standard
We describe in this paper light-scattering measurements performed on micellar solutions. The emphasis is put here on the experimental problems whereas a detailed account of the physico-chemical information which can be extracted from the data is presented elsewhere. In particular, we discuss a simple and accurate absolute calibration method of the light-scattering apparatus. Such a method is based upon turbidity measurements near the critical consolution point of a nonionic amphiphile solution.
