  8. There may be an exception to this guideline for large spherical bubbles because backscattering can be enhanced by the axial focusing of p = 3 glory rays.Observations of this enhancement for bubbles in liquids are described in P. L. Marston, D. S. Langley, J. Opt. Soc. Am. 70, 1607 (1980).
  9. Refraction corrections, such as those described in Ref. 7, are simplified when the light enters and leaves the scattering volume via plane interfaces, and a lens is used to place the detector in the far field. This may be achieved by immersing the glass in an index-matching liquid and illuminating and observing it via windows.
