The spectro-angular light scattering measurements of individual microscopic objects are presented. Using spectroscopic quantitative phase microscopy and Fourier transform light scattering, the 2D angle-resolved light scattering intensity and phase patterns are measured in a spectral range of 450-750 nm and an angular range of –70-70°. The spectro-angular light scattering measurements of individual polystyrene beads are demonstrated with high sensitivity and precision.
