Abstract

The scattering phase functions of micrometer-sized glycerol droplets containing spherical latex inclusions undergo random fluctuations with time. We measure scattering intensities in the near-forward and near-backward scattering directions and find them to have strong positive correlations during some time periods and strong negative correlations during other time periods. The characteristic time constants of these correlations are of the order of seconds. We calculate scattering correlations from two types of scattering system. Correlations from a two-sphere system generally are positive, whereas correlations from a sphere containing a single spherical inclusion may be both positive and negative. Calculations of correlations from our experimental data are consistent with diffusion of inclusions within the host droplet, rather than interference effects between the inclusions.
