The aim of this project is a quantitatieve experimental study of the Ostwald ripening of alkane emulsions (= oil phase) in water. The aging of some model emulsions will be monitored by measurements of the droplet sizes by fiber-optics dynamic light scattering. This method allows to study the Ostwald ripening in concentrated and turbid emulsions.
