||Terutake Hayashi, Nanoparticle sizing method based on fluorescence anisotropy analysis, Measurement, vol. 59, 382-388, 2015.01, Demand for applications of nanoparticles in electric architecture has been increasing. Nanoparticles provide new opportunities for improving circuit response. We discuss a novel method for evaluating nanoparticle sizes based on fluorescence anisotropy analysis. Particle size evaluation is possible through measurements of the rotational diffusion coef- ficient, which is sensitive to particle size. We develop a system for measuring rotational diffusion coefficients by using a fluorescent probe to label a particle. We report fundamen- tal experiments that verify the feasibility of the proposed method. The rotational diffusion coefficients of gold nanoparticles with diameters ranging 6–20 nm were measured using the proposed method. The measured rotational diffusion coefficients decrease with increasing particle size. This finding indicates that nanoparticles smaller than 15 nm can be measured with fine resolution..

This study proposes a new method of measuring stylus sphere diameters for micro-CMMs based on the analysis of whispering gallery modes (WGMs). Depending on the incident wavelength, different WGMs will be excited in the probe stylus, resulting in a wavelength spectral fingerprint that is related to the sphere diameter. In this paper, the diameter of the microprobe stylus sphere was determined with a least-squares method using theoretical and measured spectra of WGMs.
The measurement results showed that the precision of the proposed method was nm..
