Abstract

Two-dimensional angular optical scattering (TAOS) patterns of droplets composed of a mixture of H<sub>2</sub>O and D<sub>2</sub>O are detected in the mid infrared. First, a lens is used in the Abbé sine condition to collect a small solid angle of light, where the scattering pattern matches well numerical simulations based on Mie theory. Next, TAOS patterns from droplets spanning a large (≈2π sr) solid angle are captured simultaneously at two wavelengths. The effects of absorption are evident in the patterns and are discernible without the need for curve matching by Mie theory.
