Near-field intensity correlations of scattered light.


We show that the two-point correlation function in the near field of scattered light is simply related to the scattered intensity distribution. We present a new, to our knowledge, optical scheme to measure the correlation function in the near field, and we describe a processing technique that permits the subtraction of stray light on a statistical basis. We present experimental data for solutions of latex spheres, and we show that this novel technique is a powerful alternative to static light scattering.
