Why Do Pharmaceutical Companies Care Why the Sky is Blue Or
How Light Scattering Helps Us Live Longer Healthier Lives
We perceive the physical world from light that scatters from the environment. The same physics that describes the blue sky can be used to accurately measure the physical properties of macromolecules in solution. For over thirty years Wyatt Technology has been manufacturing desktop instruments that use light scattering and related techniques to measure absolute molar mass, size, charge and interactions of macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution. The range of applications is incredibly diverse ranging from characterizing pharmaceuticals to sizing metal clusters to making stronger polymers. Come hear about the practical applications of "blue sky” physics and take a tour of Wyatt Technology Corporation's Santa Barbara headquarters containing over 30,000 square feet of modern electronics, optical prototype, machine shop, and laboratory facilities.
