Abstract

A focused beam technique has been developed for diagnosing the characteristics of individual particles within a polydisperse ensemble. In the Rayleigh-Debye approximation the scattered fields are related to the orientation and properties of a scatterer by means of explicit analytic formulas. The results simplify when the particle size is small compared to the minimum beam diameter.
