A new light scattering facility utilizes a laser particle levitation technique to measure the angular distribution of light scattered by solid particles of size range 10–100 μm, over a range of scattering angles between 16 and 167°. The performance of the facility is illustrated by an excellent match between the observed scattering from a 33 μm-diam sphere and Mie theory prediction.
