The Microwave Analog Facility at Sunya: Capabilities and Current Programs
This newly renovated facility at the Space Astronomy Laboratory (SUNYA) is a powerful experimental tool for investigating scattering by non-spherical particles. Single particle extinction data, averages of the scattering function over random particle orientation, precise knowledge of the size, shape, index of refraction, and particle-shape versus incident-beam geometry are advantages not realized by other experimental methods. Three on-going programs at the facility are also briefly described.
