We numerically calculate the light scattering intensity fluctuations and the cross-polarization intensity fluctuations of optically soft spherical particles containing an eccentrically located spherical particle. In all cases the magnitude of the signals tends to increase with particle asymmetry. Such a system approximates a biological cell in solution.
