One suggestion for improving the sensitivity of your scatter measurements 
is to use a water cooled argon laser running in UV.  A water cooled argon 
laser has less optical noise than an air cooled laser.  Also by running 
in UV, when a particle scatters UV light, it scatters it farther because 
the light is a longer wavelength.
