The realization of improved depolarized dynamic light scattering method is presented. This technique supports measurement of non-spherical nanoparticals dimensions in liquids. The relations between translational and rotational diffusion coefficients and autocorrelation function of scattered light with polarized and depolarized components in various proportions are derived. Thus measurement of very weak cross-polarized component can be avoided. This improvement permits to reduce measurement time, to improve signal to noise ratio and results precision. The technique was applied for sizing of gold nanorods and multiwalled carbon nanotubes in liquids.
