I'm interested in looking at the angular scattering distribution from a single water drop illuminated by a collimated monochromatic beam - the classic problem solved by Mie scattering theory. I want to collect the signal on a detector and see the 'rings' produced and how they change with particle size.
I have not been able to see this result with sufficient resolution in non-sequential mode. I'm open to using the geometric ray tracing approximation as well, where I model the drop as a sphere - but I have not obtained results with sufficieent resolution using this technique either. I'd like so see this difference on my detector for drops ranging from 5 - 200 um.
