Abstract

We present a method to determine the anisotropy parameter g of a scattering liquid medium. A simple experimental setup is used to measure the scattered light from turbid samples, and a calibration curve is used to determine g. The interaction coefficient of the medium is experimentally determined, and the calibration curve is obtained through Monte Carlo simulations. The method is tested for nonabsorbing solutions of polystyrene spheres, and the simulation results are found to agree with the experiments.
