Abstract
An introduction into the elements of diffraction theory of coherent scattering of vector waves for size and velocity measurements is proposed to discuss. In traditional approach, a square-law detector is to observe beating in optical signal consists of two components: scattered and not-scattered scalar waves. The basis of proposed metrology is beating of two scattered coherent vector waves with variable states of their vectors of polarization (Coherent Light Beating Scattering (CLBS)) on a photodetector. Vectorial optical signal of CLBS is considered in framework of Fraunhofer diffraction of two plane vector waves by a single particle in case of periodical modulation of vector of polarization described as Jones vector. The formalism of Jones matrix is proposed to describe CLBS by a distribution of particles to control their sizes and velocities. A portable CLBS-spectrometer for size and motility application in biology is described. In traditional spectroscopy of optical beating, a particle alone provides with one scattered component of scalar wave to mix with a narrow-band reference wave on a square-law photodetector. As a result, a community of particles in motion gives fluctuation of intensity available for next spectral analysis of electrical signal. On the contrast, by CLBS, a single particle is to form two vectorial scattered coherent components to beat on a photodetector that joints beating and scattering as the basis for the new active control of a distribution of particles with the principal possibility of simultaneous k- spectroscopy of sizes and (omega) -spectroscopy of velocities. The CLBS-spectrum of alive Dunaliella is presented as a first example to develop a new optical standard to measure bioactivity.
