Paper Abstract

Light-scattering diagrams (phase functions) from single living cells and beads suspended in an optical trap were recorded with 30 ms time resolution. The intensity of the scattered light was recorded over an angular range of 0.5-179.5° using an optical setup based on an elliptical mirror and rotating aperture. Experiments revealed that light-scattering diagrams from biological cells exhibit significant and complex time dependence.
