Monotonic relationships between scattered intensities and diameters in Lorenz-Mie theory are obtained with the aid of the SUPERMIDI computer program. The influence of the solid collection angle, scattered light, and of the real and imaginary parts of the complex refractive index on these relations is discussed. Results are given for typical opaque particles (aluminum) and transparent particles (glass). Emphasis is on the application of such relationships to simultaneous measurements of the velocity and the size of single particles embedded in flows.
