In the last decades, the experimental setup located in Amsterdam,
The Netherlands, has produced a significant number of experimental
scattering matrices as functions of the scattering angle of randomly
oriented small particles. The Dutch setup was closed in 2007. An
improved descendant of the Dutch experimental setup has been recently
constructed at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía, CSIC, the IAA cosmic dust laboratory.
To provide an incentive for further research and applications all
published Dutch and Spanish experimental data are accessible through
SUMMARY OF SAMPLES in the Amsterdam-Granada Light Scattering Database.
Nov 2019 The light-scattering properties of volcanic sand collected in Iceland are studied here to characterize the sand particles and develop a reference for future remote-sensing observations. Read more
