Diameters of single polystyrene beads were determined within ~10 nm accuracy by comparing Mie theory oscillations and wavelength resolved measurements. The setup is realized with an axicon supported reflected darkfield microscope and is herein presented in detail. Further we explain a theoretical model considering the effective numerical aperature of the measuring system. A fitting algorithm allows rapid characterization of the sphere diameters.
