Mie scattering intensities as a function of the size parameter are measured by use of a tunable dye laser and monodispersed spherical particles. The experimental results are compared with the Mie single scattering theory; a discrepancy in the exact position of the maxima and minima was detected. Agreement between experiment and theory was improved by applying a correction to the manufacturer’s index of refraction function for the particles.
