Experimental validation of the vectorial complex ray model on the inter-caustics scattering of oblate droplets.

We report the first experimental validation of the Vectorial Complex Ray Model (VCRM) using the scattering patterns of large oblate droplets trapped in an acoustic field. The two principal radii and refractive index of the droplets are retrieved with a minimization method that involves VCRM predictions and experimental light scattering patterns. The latter… CONTINUE READING
