Figure 1.

Alcohol/PAO nanoemulsion fluids (Bottle A) and pure PAO (Bottle B). Liquids in both bottles are transparent. The Tyndall effect (i.e., a light beam can be seen when viewed from the side) can be observed only in Bottle A when a laser beam is passed through Bottles A and B. Pictures taken using a Canon PowerShot digital camera.
