The effect of the color on the size measurement

Sample

Light Source

Sample without color Sample in Red color Sample in Green color
Green Laser 100.662(±0.249)nm 88.514(±0.342)nm 100.668(±0.350)nm
Blue laser 100.914(±0.346)nm 102.250(±0.525)nm 112.024(±1.504)nm
 
For the colored sample, to avoid large deviation on the particle size measurement, the user should select the suitable light source. Analyzing the UV-Vis Absorption Spectrum is a useful aid for the selection of light source. If limited by the spectrum analyzer, the operator can simply switch the laser source between the blue light and green light base on the concept that the color with longer wavelength is prone to absorb the light with shorter wavelength. In general, the blue laser is recommended for the sample in red, orange, yellow color; and the green laser is recommended for the sample in green, blue and purple color.

Refractive Index
1. Temperature correction of refractive index
Generally speaking, for eachdegree Celsius of temperature increase, the refractive index of liquid organic compounds decreases by 3.5×10-4-5.5×10-4. For some liquids, especially when the temperature of refractive index is close to its boiling point, the temperature coefficient can reach 7×10-4. In practice, the refractive index measured at one temperature is often converted into the refractive index at another temperature. In order to facilitate the calculation, 4.5×10-4 is generally regarded as the temperature change constant. There might be aslight errorin the rough calculation, but it has reference value. In other words, the refractive index decreases with the increase of temperature, and the refractive index changes about 0.00045 for each degree change of Celsius temperature. Correct the reading for refractive index at 20°C using the following formula:
nD(t) = nD(20) - 0.00045(t-20°C)
nD(t) is the refractive index measured experimentally at temperature t. This shows that when the experimental temperature is higher than 20°C, nD(20) is larger than nD(t), while when the experimental temperature is lower than 20°C, nD(20) is smaller than nD(t).
For example, nD(t) =1.3667, t=25.2°C, calculate nD(20)
nD(t)=nD(20) - 0.00045(t-20°C)
nD(20)=1.3667+0.00045(25.2°C -20°C)
=1.3667+0.00045 × 5.2
=1.36904

2. Factors affecting refractive index
2.1  Wavelength of Light   
The refractive index of materials varies with the wavelength of light. The greater the wavelength, the lesser the refractive index. When measuring, the white light is usually applied. And when the white light refracts through the prism and sample solution, due to the different wavelength and degree of refraction of each color light, it decomposes into a variety of color light after refraction, which is called “dispersion”. The dispersion of light will make the boundary between the light and shade of the field of vision unclear, resulting in measurement errors. In order to eliminate dispersion, a dispersion compensator is installed at the bottom of the Abbe refractometer observation tube.
2.2 Temperature
The refractive index of a liquid is dependent on the temperature. As temperature increases, the fractive index decreases, and vice versa. The scale on the refractometer is engraved at the standard temperature of 20°C, so it is better to measure the refractive index at 20°C. Otherwise, the temperature correction factor should be applied. When the temperature is over 20°C, add the correction factors, and when the temperature is below 20°C, subtract the correction factors.
