A new algorithm for the solution of the inverse problem of laser correlation spectroscopy is proposed. The algorithm allows the analysis of nanoparticle sizes in polydisperse solutions. Experimental results of the albumin-fullerenol interaction study demonstrating the efficiency of our approach are presented.
