Abstract

An experimental study has been made of the angular structure of radiation scattered by monolayers of large nonabsorbing particles. We have investigated three media exhibiting different light-scattering properties: monodisperse polyvinyl toluene latex particles of 3.75-µm diameter suspended in water, polydisperse rice starch particles with a mean diameter of 6.4 µm suspended in water, and a mixture of ethyl and benzoic alcohols. It is shown that for large particles the structure of scattered radiation can be described in a single-scattering approximation. Analysis of the influence of polydispersity and the relative refractive index of particles on the intensity scattered by the monolayer has been performed.
