Introduction

When a beam (light-, X-ray-, neutron-, electron-,…) passes

through

a

transparent

medium

without

absorption

nevertheless an attenuation of the intensity of the passing

beam is observed because particles hit by the incident beam

can act as a scattering centre emitting secondary radiation,

thus dissipating energy to all directions. In the first place the

effect depends on the relation of the size of the scattering

particles, and the wave length of the radiation used and the

type of interaction between the incident beam and the particle.

In light scattering this is the interaction of the electric light

vector with electrons.

A laser beam in calm. The intensity of the scattered radiation is a superposition of this secondary radiation with the primary beam in the same direction. In order to observe scattering intensity at scattering angles 0 the medium needs to be inhomogeneous (density. e. These inhomogeneities can occur as fluctuations. there are large fluctuations of refractivity and the density such as near phase transitions between a liquid and a gas phase (critical fluctuations). k. then a strong scattering is observed (critical scattering) and the material becomes almost intransparent (critical opalescence). refractive index). clean air can hardly be detected at an angle of 90°. The elastic scattering of light (the wave length is not changed by the scattering process – no loss of energy) is called Rayleigh Scattering (Rayleigh-Gans-Debye theory). rainbow). q = k-k' k = k' = 2 q 4 sin respectively q 2k sin 2 2 (1) (2) (3a. Is energy exchanged during the scattering process and the wave length of the scattered light altered this is called Raman Scattering and is an inelastic scattering process. Scattering by transparent particles is called Mie Scattering (aerosols: rain drops. scattering by solid particles is called Tyndall Scattering. k' are the wave vectors of the incident and the scattered beam. and q is the scattering vector. b) k =k' elastic scattering (s. The scattering intensity is high when the fluctuations are large. It is the reason for the blue colour of the sky. respectively. 3b) k k' inelastic scattering (4a-c) k k' quasi-elastic scattering The incident beam hits the scattering centre and excites dipolar oscillations followed by emission of (secondary) radiation. eq.

Theory Light can be described as an electro-magnetic wave consisting of an electric field vector and a magnetic field vector at an angle of 90° which propagate though time and space. For molecules which are very small compared with the wave length of the incident light the scattering intensity in the plane perpendicular to the plane of the electric vector of the incident electromagnetic wave is practically angular independent. emitted secondary waves from different parts of the scattering particle interfere with each other.The dipoles which are induced in the scattering centre by the incident beam are parallel to the polarization of the incident beam. depending on the phase of the interfering radiation. When the molecules are larger. The scattering pattern can be calculated for certain shapes of the scattering particles and then be compared with the experiment. The secondary radiation is then emitted predominantly orthogonal to this axis with a polarization parallel to the oscillating dipoles. With knowledge of the conformation (random coilb. This coil has a centre of gravity and the coil can be described by the mean-distance of the parts of the coil from its centre of gravity. As b A random coil has a shape that comes close to a bean 3 . the angular dependence of the scattering intensity carries information about the size of the macromolecule. The shape cannot be directly concluded from the scattering pattern (because the phase relation is lost during the scattering process). It is a measure of the size of the scattering particle weighted by the mass distribution about its centre of gravity. This makes a phase shift between the individual beams likely and hence constructive and destructive interference. The size of the coil is then given as the root-meansquare radius of gyration rg2 . The dipolar radiation is strongly frequency dependent (4) so that blue light shows a higher scattering intensity compared with red light. The polymer chain can be symbolized as a string of pearls with individual small scattering centres. in particular macromolecules). which are not independent of each other since they form a chain that coils up. The intensity of the scattered light carries information about the molar mass of the scattering centres (molecules. That is why the sky is blue. rod) it can be related to the geometrical dimensions of the particle.

These forced oscillations depend on the resonance frequency of the oscillator that is forced into action.
