Paper Abstract

For microparticles, the intensity of spontaneous scattering is directly proportional to the volume. However, model calculations show that when the particle dimension parameter increases in the region 0.5<x<10, the backscattering efficiency increases sharply up to a value of 2.7 and then decreases gradually (excluding resonance effects) down to a value of 1.8 in the region10<x<500. This fact should be taken into account when determining the water content in clouds with a Raman lidar. A technique for measuring the phase function of Raman scattering on single water particles in the laboratory conditions is proposed. An experimental setup for measuring the phase function of Raman scattering on spherical liquid droplets is created and tested.
