Abstract

The particle scattering asymmetry parameter of an ensemble of submicrometer particles, as well as the complete scattering phase function (angular distribution), is determined by measuring the Doppler spectrum of the scattered light. No calibration is required. The monitor incorporates a 532 nm laser with long coherence length, an integrating sphere to collect the scattered light, and a heterodyne (interferometric) detection scheme. Measurements of monodisperse polystyrene latex spheres and polydisperse ammonium sulfate particles indicate that the measured value of the asymmetry parameter is generally within ±0.03 of that calculated using Mie theory.
