Abstract

The formation of images of semitransparent spherical particles illuminated with coherent light is described from a diffraction theory viewpoint. Such images are distinctly different from those of opaque particles. The primary optical phenomena involved are illustrated by experimental results, and practical implications for holographic imaging of sprays are noted.
