We provide theoretical results from the scattering of light by deformed liquid droplets and droplets with inclusions. With improved instrumentation and computer technologies available, researchers are able to employ two-dimensional angular optical scattering as a tool for analyzing such particle systems and which then could be applied in industrial, occupational, and military aerosol measurement. We present numerically calculated spatial light-scattering data from various droplet morphologies. We describe characteristic features of the theoretical data and compare these with the experimental results.
