Anisotropy of the Lateral Scattering of Linearly Polarized Light
This study demonstrates how lateral scattering is affected by particle distribution and by optical depth, in the direction of the incident linearly polarized light. Previous publications have linked only scattering particle size to lateral scattering anisotropy. This presentation indicates that the anisotropy apparently disappears for optical depths of approximately 10 and greater if the scattering is produced by uniformly sized particles. In addition, for at least one particle distribution (latex paint in water), this anisotropy does not appear regardless of the optical depth.
