A Method for the Quantification of Nanoparticle Dispersion in Nanocomposites Based on Fractal Dimension
Chapitre d'ouvrage scientifique
Dispersion quantification provides critical insight and towards understanding and improving the influence of nanoparticle dispersion on the behaviour of the nanocomposite at macro and nanoscale level. This study was precipitated by the limitations of most methods for quantifying dispersion to sufficiently handle issues regarding scalability, complexity, consistency and versatility. A quantity (D 0 ) based on the variance of the fractal dimension was used to quantify dispersion successfully. The concept was validated using real microscopy images. The approach is simple and versatile to implement.
