Abstract:

The more than 100 scientists from around the world who participated in this landmark conference heard 14 invited papers and 46 contributed papers. Three fourths of the papers were primarily experimental with the remaining one fourth either theoretical or review papers. The topics discussed were liquid crystals, basic scattering properties of fluids, molecular reorientation and depolarized scattering, viscoelastic media, flow and turbulence, surfaces, critical phenomena, biological systems and macromolecules, nonlinear scattering and charged scatterers. The diversity of topics is indicative of the extent to which laser as a light scattering plus Doppler shift interferometry have developed as a versatile measurement method. The techniques of the method are now reasonably well understood so the emphasis is on tailoring measurements to specific applications. This will require the professional involvement of light scattering experts with specialists in a wide variety of disciplines.
