A light scattering photometer is described with which one can measure periodicity in the intensity fluctuations of light, scattered from a dilute colloidal suspension. Using a specially designed sample cell, variations in the scattering when the system is subjected to pulsed electric fields can be recorded and interpreted to give the electrophoretic mobility for colloidal particles. Under conditions of direct optical transmission, transient optical birefringent effects can be measured and interpreted in terms of the electrical polarisability of the particles. These two parameters are of value in characterising the surface charges and hence the stability of the particles in their fluid environment. Illustrative data are given for asbestos sols.
