Liu, L., M.I. Mishchenko, J.W. Hovenier, H. Volten, and O. Muñoz, 2003: Scattering matrix of quartz aerosols: comparison and synthesis of laboratory and Lorenz-Mie results. J. Quant. Spectrosc. Radiat. Transfer, 79-80, 911-920, doi:10.1016/S0022-4073(02)00328-X.

This paper compares and combines the results of laboratory measurements of the Stokes scattering matrix for nonspherical quartz aerosols at a visible wavelength in the scattering angle range 5-173° and the results of Lorenz-Mie computations for projected-area-equivalent spheres with the refractive index of quartz. A synthetic normalized phase function is constructed based on the laboratory data and the assumption that the diffraction forward-scattering peak is the same for spherical and nonspherical projected-area-equivalent particles. The experimental scattering matrix for the nonspherical quartz particles is poorly represented by the Lorenz-Mie results for most scattering angles. However, the asymmetry parameters for the synthetic phase function and for the equivalent spherical particles are similar.
