Abstract

Systematic theoretical calculations are presented investigating (a) the external excitation of resonances within a spherical droplet using a focused laser beam, (b) the internal excitation of resonances within a spherical droplet due to an embedded source, and (c) the effect of droplet nonsphericity on resonance excitation.
