Abstract

The angular distribution of the stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) from ethanol droplets is observed to be sinusoidal with n peaks, which are consistent with the mode number n of the morphology-dependent resonances (MDR’s). Two distinct values of n depend on the illumination geometry and the linewidth of the input laser radiation. Angular fine structures of the SRS can be used to identify the n of the MDR.
