Experimental tests of a theoretical method for predicting light scattering by aggregates.
A recent method for predicting light scattering by random aggregates of particles is experimentally examined. This approximate method is here tested in terms of its ability to predict the effects ofExpand

Absorption spectrophotometry of turbid suspensions: a method of correcting for large systematic distortions.
Abstract Absorption spectra of intact biological materials as measured with conventional spectrophotometers are normally distorted by light-scattering losses and the “sieve effect.” A scatteringExpand

Application of light-scattering theory to the optical effects associated with the morphology of blood platelets.
Abstract When fresh citrated platelet-rich plasma was stirred at 900 rpm, stopping the stirrer increased the extinction, E (optical density, absorbance), of the plasma by 25%. After the plateletsExpand

Selective scattering of light by pigments in vivo.
Abstract Pigmented plant cells scatter light with strong spectral selectivity. The scattering maxima and minima can be attributed to anomalous dispersion within the colored phases in the cells.Expand

When a collimated beam of light encounters a system of biological cells or structures, part of the light may be absorbed, part is scattered, and the rest is transmitted. Transmitted and scatteredExpand

Changes in total light scattering and absorption caused by changes in particle conformation.
Abstract reversible changes in light transmission and scattering by cells and large subcellular particles (e.g. mitochondria and chloroplasts) have been widely observed. Such optical changes areExpand

Light scattering at various angles. Theoretical predictions of the effects of particle volume changes.
The Mie theory of scattering is used to provide new information on how changes in particle volume, with no change in dry weight, should influence light scattering for various scattering angles andExpand

Abstract When cells and large subcellular structures suffer a change in volume or internal structure, their light-scattering properties are normally altered. These optical-conformation changes areExpand
