Paper Abstract

We have experimentally studied the transformation of polarization properties of light scattered from particles oriented in an external constant electric field. A mathematical model of the phenomena observed in presented. It was established in this study that by measuring the behavior of polarization properties of backscattered radiation as a function of the electric field strength can enable one to estimate polarizability of particles and the form of the optical polarizability tensor.
