Abstract

We discovered that the far-field light scattering spectra of microparticles over wavenumber at a certain angle could be decomposed into periodic components, with an oscillation frequency linearly dependent on the particle size at each angle. Based on this observation, we propose and experimentally demonstrate a new Fourier transform technique for microparticle size determination. This technique is simple, fast, robust in its data processing algorithm, and flexible in its detection system.
