3 June 1987 Measurements Of The Scattering Profile Of Fibers
Author Affiliations +
Light-scattering profiles were measured for small circular fibers. In particular, two fused silica fibers of different diameter were measured at both 10.6 and 0.6328-μm wavelengths, with a range in size parameter (circumference to wavelength ratio) from 1/2 to 20. Data were obtained for incidence normal to the fiber axis and for almost 360 degrees of rotation in the plane of incidence. The measurements were taken with an instrument designed for the optical surface evaluation of the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) In addition, the measured scattering profiles were compared, with good agreement, to the Mie theory prediction for scattering from an infinite cylinder.
