Abstract

Intensities of light scattered in the planes parallel and perpendicular to the polarization plane of the incident light are used to determine the size, refractive index, and dispersion of a single droplet suspended in an electrodynamic balance. Wavelengths of TE- and TM-mode resonances are determined independently with high precision when a ring dye laser is scanned. Resonating wavelengths are matched with theoretical intensity peaks to determine the constants of a dispersion formula and the size that minimizes the difference between observed and calculated wavelengths. The procedure permits the determination of the size and refractive index with relative errors of 3 × 10−5 and dispersion with an absolute error of 2 × 10−5 over the experimental spectral range.
