Optical anisotropy in colloidal crystals [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
We use the theory of dynamical diffraction to interpret polarization-dependent light attenuation phenomena in thin colloidal crystals. We measure light attenuation anisotropies, resulting from coherent and incoherent scattering from a suspension of monodisperse aqueous polystyrene microspheres, with rotary polarization modulating polarimetry. Measured anisotropies are in excellent agreement with dynamical diffraction predictions. These measurements provide a new means to quantify crystal orientation in thin cells. We relate anisotropy to crystal color observed between crossed polarizers and to crystal structure, volume fraction and orientation. textcopyright 1990 American Institute of Physics.
