Abstract

This paper describes a photon-correlation spectroscopic study of micrometer-sized droplets of saturated sodium chloride solution captured in an electrodynamic levitator. It is shown that both the host and guest properties have an effect on the results. Characteristic decay times are derived by analyzing the correlation function for scattered light intensity. This technique can be applied to the examination of the internal dynamics of composite particles.
