Zeta can be used to calculate zeta potentials for ka > 6 from electrophoretic mobilities measured at the stationary level or from apparent zeta potentials displayed by zetameter (estimated by Smoluchowski equation). Apparent mobilities measured at 3 different levels in a rectangular electrophoretic cell (aspect ratio > 4) can be used to calculate the zeta potential (parabola method).

Zeta consists of several parts, among which are: a platform independent C++ library (works on UNIX/Linux and Windows, probably also other platforms), a Windows GUI, a command line interface (early development stage, not in CVS yet) and an obsolete DOS semi-graphical user interface. The homepage of Zeta also hosts a primer on electrokinetic phenomena and zeta potential.

Zeta is free software, licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
