Abstract

We report the first experimental validation of the Vectorial Complex Ray Model (VCRM) using the scattering patterns of large oblate droplets trapped in an acoustic field. The two principal radii and refractive index of the droplets are retrieved with a minimization method that involves VCRM predictions and experimental light scattering patterns. The latter are recorded in the droplet equatorial plane between the primary rainbow region and the associated hyperbolic-umbilic diffraction catastrophe. The results demonstrate that the VCRM can predict the fine and coarse stuctures of scattering patterns with good precision, opening up perspectives for the characterization of large non-spherical particles.
