NanoTrackJ is an ImageJ/Fiji plugin to characterize the size of nanoparticles by its diffusion trajectories.
With NanoTrackJ it is possible to analyze videos of freely diffusing particles. It is mainly tested with tracking moving diffraction patterns of diffusing nanoparticles. The plugin estimates the particle size and diffusion coefficient distribution. Therefore, a fundamental relationship between the diffusion coefficient and the hydrodynamic diameter is exploited: The Stokes-Einstein relation.
Instructions about how to install NanoTrackJ may be found in the Wiki

- Size distribution of diffusing nanoparticles using particle tracking
- Several methods for estimation the diffusion coefficient
- Device independent
- NanoTrackJ exploits color information (like surface plasmon resonance) for further analysis of particle size distributions.
I have used NanoTrackJ to analyse a lot of video footage obtained from laser scattering experiments. NanoTrackJ has allowed me to perform nanoparticle tracking analysis using video recorded using several levels of magnification (x10-100) to provide me with results in excellent agreement with other commercially available software. The software itself is very easy to use with a nice GUI. Any problems that I have encountered along the way have been answered and dealt with very quickly.
