Abstract

Raman scattering on deformed droplets levitated in an acoustic levitator and produced by a vibrating-orifice aerosol generator were investigated. Our samples experiments were diethyl hexyl sebecate (DEHS) droplets in the millimeter-size range and ethanol droplets in the size range 50–100μm . The C—H stretching region from 2800 to 3100 cm-1 was investigated. We found that the Raman intensity measured by a scattering angle of 90° depended on the shape of the droplets. Raman scattering on spherical droplets was smaller than scattering on spheroidal droplets with the same volume. Similar results were observed for the fluorescence signal of Rhodamine 6G-doped DEHS droplets.
