Abstract
Phase Doppler methods that measure the diameter of moving spherical particles are sensitive to particle trajectory effects that cause a phase error under Gaussian beam illumination. This error results from the interference between reflected and refracted rays from the particle. We first numerically estimate the particle trajectory effect using the geometrical optics approximation and the generalized Lorenz-Mie theory (GLMT) and, then, discuss the optimum measurement conditions that minimize the phase error. We next theoretically and experimentally investigate a method for reducing the trajectory effect using the separation of reflected and refracted rays on the basis of the polarization change. Experimental results show the usefulness of this method.
