We study the dynamics of concentrated colloidal suspensions by measuring the frequency dependent structure factor, S(q,w), using light scattering techniques. We introduce Diffusing Wave Spectroscopy, which extends dynamic light scattering to the multiple scattering regime, allowing us to study the lower frequency, diffusive modes of S(q,w), which reflect the Brownian motion of the particles. We study the behavior of the higher-frequency, propagating modes of S(q,w), which reflect acoustic waves, using Brillouin scattering. To study S(q,w) at low qa, where q is the scattering vector and a the particle diameter, we use inverted micelles, and find that the interactions between the micelles has a dramatic impact on the speed of sound as the volume fraction of micelles increases. To study S(q,w) at large qa, we use index matched PMMA particles, allowing us to measure the dispersion curve of phonons in a hard sphere colloid system. Together, these results provide a measure of S(q, w) over a wide range of q and of w.
