Abstract

We have developed an experimental method based on the visibility factor of light-scattering minima to obtain size-polydispersity information from contaminants upon a flat substrate. We verify the method by using double-interaction-model calculations and use this technique to examine experimentally the radial variation of a micrometer-sized fiber and the size polydispersity of spherical particles upon a substrate.
