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 this database.

Experimental Phase Functions of Millimeter-sized Cosmic Dust Grainsenstatite

Sep 2017  We present the experimental phase functions of three types of millimeter-sized dust grains consisting of enstatite, quartz, and volcanic material from Mount Etna, respectively. The three grains present similar sizes but different absorbing properties. The measurements are performed at 520 nm covering the scattering angle range from 3° to 170°. Read more
