Abstract

Mie calculations illustrate the dependences of scattered intensity on polarization, angle, and size for bubbles with radii ≃0.3 mm in a siloxane liquid. Computations give evidence of the axial focusing observed in recent experiments and predicted by a model. Conditions for glory rays in drops and bubbles are derived, and errors in the literature are noted.
