Zeta potential (ζ)
Zeta potential is a fundamental property of colloidal suspension related to the effective surface electrical charges of particles immersed in a solvent. ζ measurement is very important because it gives an indication on formulation stability and electrophoretic properties of NPs. Zeta potential is measured by the well-known technique of Laser Doppler Electrophoresis.

Laser Doppler Electrophoresis principle :
An alternative electrical field/voltage is applied between two electrodes immersed deeply in the colloidal suspension; the charged particles are forced into a translation motion (electrophoresis) with a speed (ν) proportional to the applied electrical field. The electrophoretic mobility is defined by the ratio between the particle speed and the applied field amplitude.
