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.
Mar 2018 We present the experimental scattering matrix as a function of the scattering angle of the lunar soil simulant JSC-1A. The measurements were performed at 488, 520, and 647 nm, covering the range of scattering angles from 3 to 177 degrees. The effect of sub-micron-sized particles on the measured phase function and degree of linear polarization has been studied. Read more
