Abstract

Experimental near-forward-scattering diagrams obtained with one particle in optical levitation are recorded and compared with scattering diagrams computed by using the generalized Lorenz–Mie theory. Comparisons concern the particular case of an off-axis location of the particle. Agreement between experimental and computed diagrams is found to be satisfactory.
