Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) is based on measuring the time dependent fluctuation of scattered light intensity by macromolecular solution. This light intensity fluctuation can be transformed by non-linear fitting of autocorrelation function into the molecular size distribution. This method gives a possibility of calculating diffusion coefficient, hydrodynamic radius, molecular weight and polydispersity of investigated samples.
