In one embodiment, the dimensions of nanoparticles are determined by focusing light on a sample of nanoparticles suspended in a solution, collecting light scattered by the nanoparticles, measuring translational and rotational decay rates of the collected light, calculating a ratio of the rotational decay rate to translational decay rate, and estimating a first dimension of the nanoparticles based upon the decay rate ratio.
