Abstract

Narrow angle light scattering measurements were made for various sizes of spherical particles suspended in water. These were compared to calculated theoretical scattering values as derived from the theory of Mie (1908). Through measurements with different particle concentrations at angles between 0.2° and 0.7° the effect of the unscattered main beam light was removed. Results agreed well with Mie theory for these angles.
