The numerical results of the retrieved radius in the lower panel of Fig. 6 in [Opt. Express 17(6), 4659–4669 (2009)] were incorrect. This does not change any of the conclusions.

Fig. 1. Evaporation behavior of a SA particle at T=298.5 K, RH slightly decreasing at RH ≈ 50%, efflorescing at t = 20,197 s (the phase transition is determined from 2-dimensional angular scattering data, not shown here). Upper panel: temporal evolution of resonance spectra (color coded intensity). The deduced radius squared is plotted in the lower panel (black curve). Linear fits to datapoints for liquid and solid states yield dr 2/dt = 2.99 × 10−4 μm 2/s and dr 2/dt = 3.16 × 10−6 μm 2/s (dashed blue and orange lines, respectively).
