Abstract

We present modeling results in video format showing the changes that occur in the light scattered by a spherical oleic-acid host droplet containing a spherical water inclusion as the inclusion parameters vary. When the system symmetry is broken, a second set of diffraction rings appears on the side opposite the inclusion. The inclusion also acts as a second coherent source, contributing to an interference structure in the scattering pattern, the spatial frequency of which varies with the position of the inclusion.
