We present the results of an experimental study for testing the validity of an analytical model describing scattering of radiation by coated fibers. The experiments involved measuring radiation intensities scattered by a 7.9-μm dia silica fiber coated with a 0.25-μm thick silicon layer at wavelengths of 0.633 and 10.6 μm. The measured results have been compared with predicted values. The comparisons revealed good agreement for the locations of the maxima and minima of the scattered intensities, acceptable agreement for the backscattered fraction, and qualitative agreement for the intensity amplitudes. We conclude that there is sufficient evidence to support use of the model for analysing radiation scattering by coated fibers.
