Abstract

We present results of experiments to determine the spectral and angular dependence of nonlinear scattering by water microdroplets of radii ranging from 1 to 32 m illuminated by ultrashort laser pulses. The main process observed is third-harmonic generation (THG). Moreover, in contrast with linear Mie scattering, the angular pattern of the THG is remarkably stable over the size range 8 32 m. 1998 Optical Society of America S0740-3224(98)03207-X
