Abstract

We show that the two point intensity correlation in the near field of the scattered light is directly related to the two point density correlation g(r). Preliminary measurements on two sets of calibrated random pinholes of 140 and 300 &mgr;m diameters, and on aqueous solutions of latex spheres of 5, 10, and 40 &mgr;m are reported. A discussion on the desirability of the technique as a simple and powerful alternative to low angle scattering will be presented.
