The Effect of an Electric Field on the Backscattered Radiance of a Single Water Droplet
Microscopic droplets formed by the condensation of water vapor on sodium chloride crystals are supported on spider threads and subjected to a horizontal electric field. The shape of the droplet and the near field surface wave radiance are dependent upon the intensity of the field. The spider thread method of support should permit the angular scattering pattern of an isolated irregularly shaped particle to be obtained.
