A simple algebraic procedure is applied to the problem of particle shape characterization in an ensemble of small randomly oriented spheroidal particles. It is shown that the eigenvalues of the system coherency matrix can be used to retrieve particle shape information. Optically active particles give rise to more general functional forms for the eigenvalues and system entropy, but still permit retrieval of information concerning particle morphology and microstructure.
