Abstract:

Angular scattering diagrams are constructed for spherical aerosols of refractive index n 1.5. They show the intensity functions i sub 1, i sub 2, and i sub 1 plus i sub 2 as functions of the scattering angles for size parameters alpha 0.5 0.510. The basic data have been computed using Mies theory, and a graphical interpolation technique altitude-chart technique has been used to determine accurately the position and numerical value of the maxima and minima. The scattering diagrams presented in this atlas allow to determine the intensity functions i sub 1, i sub 2, and i sub 1 plus i sub 2 for any desired scattering angle with a high degree of reliability. The basic data limit the construction of reliable scattering diagrams to alpha less than 10.
