A formula of considerable generality is derived for the spectrum of light produced by static scattering of polychromatic light on a system of particles. It applies to deterministic as well as to random distributions of monodispersed or polydispersed particles. We illustrate it by examples. It is suggested that spectral changes produced by scattering could be used for determining the structure of some scattering systems.
