Abstract : A recent paper by the authors presented an explanation on how the stress or strain fields surrounding a void or inclusion within a solid could give rise to light scattering. This scattering resulted from the associated anisotropy. This report applies that treatment to the strain field surrounding growing bubbles in a viscoelastic liquid. Equations showing a dependence of the scattering on the bubble size and bubble growth rate are developed.
