Paper Abstract

A homemade static light scattering set-up has been used to study scattering of spherical polystyrene particles (polyballs) and bacterial strains. The polyballs are of different sizes and of spherical shape. Bacterial strains are thin rods and of different sizes. Unpolarized, linearly polarized, and circularly polarized light is used in our studies. The relation between size, shape, and the state of polarization of the incident light on scattering is studied experimentally. The polarization ratio and the scattering ratio are determined for the macromolecules.
