Abstract : The results of the initial phase of a study on the electromagnetic scattering properties of dust particles generated in simulated nuclear explosions are presented. A technique was developed for suspending single small particulates in an electric field in a laser beam. Complex refractive indices for trail materials (latex particles and liquid droplets) and for dust particles obtained from solar furnace experiments are reported as well as the chemical (EDAX) analysis of the particles.
