Abstract

SUMMARY: Rod-shaped particles suspended in a liquid undergo a partial orientation during flow; the flowing suspension has the property of scattering light mainly in certain preferred directions. The elementary theory of the phenomenon shows that it can be applied practically as a photometric method of following changes in length. A simple and effective apparatus for this purpose is described, and its performance illustrated. A brief discussion of size changes in synchronized cultures indicates the relation between these changes and the rate of fission.
