Location: Room # B0110, Bldg. # 085


Institute for Physical Science and Technology


University of Maryland, College Park

The goal of the Light Scattering Center is to promote research, education, and commerce in new fields of materials science, chemical & biomolecular engineering, colloid science, and chemistry & biochemistry. The activities of the Center aim to help researchers and educators from within the University and from within the local region, by providing them with instrumentation facilities and scholarly expertise in static and dynamic light scattering technique.

The light scattering center welcomes members from Academia, National Labs, and the Industry. Our services include use of the light scattering instruments, training of students and scientists in the use of these instruments, help with data analyses and data interpretation. Trained users can carry out their measurements independently.
