Scattering patterns captured at two different directions from ink-doped ethanol droplets containing submicrometer-sized particles, which had been pumped by nanosecond pulses, were obtained simultaneously. By use of ray optics we interpreted the various scattering patterns of the lasing in droplets. The scattering image of one side and the spectral image of the opposite side were also detected simultaneously. We observed that particles scatter with similar output couplings among modes of the same order. We also found that a single particle could react to modes of different orders with different output couplings.
