Abstract

A brief overview is given of experimental scattering matrices of natural particles that seem to be most relevant to ensembles of cosmic dust particles. The matrices have been obtained by letting laser radiation at 441.6 nm and 632.8 nm be scattered by collections of small, randomly oriented particles over angles from about 5° – 173°. The samples considered include feldspar, red clay, quartz, loess, Pinatubo and Lokon volcanic ashes, Sahara sand, olivine, Allende meteorite and fly ash. The elements of the scattering matrices as functions of the scattering angle show a number of interesting similarities and differences. These are briefly discussed, especially in relation to particle shape.
