Abstract

Structural resonances have been found in the Raman spectra of optically levitated liquid droplets of mixtures of water and glycerol. The observed resonances could be assigned by using the well-known Lorenz-Mie formalism. It was found that for the particular droplet under investigation quite high-order numbers (l = 8,9) of the natural modes of oscillation of a sphere play a dominant role. We describe the intensities of the resonances in the Raman spectrum particularly through the volume averaged internal field intensity. We show further that the internal angle-averaged electric field intensity is localized near, but not confined to, the sphere surface.
