The main reason for the increase of haze is Mie scattering in composites caused by dispersed LDAs.
In contrast, newer systems use principles of Mie scattering which predicts that with lower wavelengths of excitation there will be an increased amount of scattered light and improved resolution.
A Mie scattering code, such as that of Wolf and Voshchinnikov [10], computes optical parameters such as extinction and backscatter at the relevant wavelengths by using the measured droplet size distribution.
The size of microbubbles is on the order of a wavelength, and therefore the main optical effect of light-MB interaction is Mie scattering [4].
The Mie scattering formulation is applied to formulate the problem and solve for dispersion diagram of the periodic configuration.
The Lorenz-Mie calculations were performed using MatLab with Maetzler [2] code for Mie scattering.
When the source is outside the cloak, usually the Mie scattering problem is solved to obtain the field distributions in different layers [11,12].
I therefore proposed that Mie scattering should be present [4].
Detectors measure intensity as a function of scattering angle and derive particle size based on Mie scattering theory.
Furthermore, as the diameter of the particle approaches the wavelength, Rayleigh light scattering loses importance and Mie scattering predominates (7).
