Abstract

Two-dimensional angular optical scattering (TAOS) patterns from clusters of polystyrene latex spheres are measured in the near-forward and near-backward directions. In both cases, the scattering pattern contains a rich and complicated structure that is the result of the interaction and interference of light among the primary particles. Calculations are made for aggregates that are similar to those generated experimentally and also demonstrate the rich structure in the scattering pattern. A comparison of the experimental and theoretical TAOS patterns gives good qualitative agreement.
