In this paper, we propose a novel simple technique by combining the experimental bright-ï¬eld imaging, Rayleigh or Mie scattering, and photon counts in order to investigate and distinguish the light scattering from nanohybrid polymer materials and its aggregation imaging. In particular, by studying the imaging of nanohybrid polymer and measuring its photon counts, we can demonstrate how big the different of photon counts of each images of nanohybrid polymer materials. Moreover, by combining bright-ï¬eld imaging with its photon counts in the framework of the generalized scattering theory, we show that this nanohybrid polymer exhibits the scattering differently based on the number of nanoparticles or aggregations. This novel technique can be widely applied in many different research works such as nanomedicine and nanotechnology.
