    Surface force between a micron-sized polystyrene and dielectric substrate in solution has been analyzed by measuring the displacement of the laser-trapped probe. The amount of displacement is measured by detecting the intensity of light scattering at the probe illuminated by evanescent field....

    The concentration dependence (range 1–40 %) of the dynamics of monodisperse polymer latex dispersions (particle diameters 41–326 nm) is studied by fiber-optic quasielastic light scattering (FOQELS). The experiments reveal that despite the high turbidity of the samples multiple...

    A new method for measuring the power spectrum of the quasielastic light scattering with the sinusoidal electric field (QELS-SEF) has been developed on the basis of a Wiener–Khinchin theorem extended to the periodically stationary systems such as QELS-SEF. The extended theorem enables us...

    We report the observation of strongly anisotropic scattering of laser light at oblique incidence on a (100)-oriented porous silicon layer. The scattered light forms cones tangent to the incident and reflected beams. The conical pattern is caused by scattering on the vertical walls of pores,...
