Experimental light scattering properties of cosmic dust analogs at visible wavelengths. The IAA Cosmic Dust Laboratory.
 
Seminar by Olga Muñoz Gómez, Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía, Granada, Spain
Small irregular dust particles are present in a wide variety of astronomical environments. By analyzing the light scattered by those particles we can retrieve valuable information about their physical properties (shape,size, and composition) as well as their location within a certain atmosphere. The main goal of this talk is to show how experimental data of intensity and polarization of the scattered light of different cosmic dust analogs can be used to shed some light on the nature of dust particles. In particular, we will focus on samples relevant for the study of the atmospheres of planets, satellites, and comets in the Solar System. The measurements have been performed at the COsmic DUst LABoratory (CODULAB) located at the Astrophysical Institute of Andalusia, Granada, Spain.
