Absorption and Scattering of Light by Small Particles

Treating absorption and scattering in equal measure, this self-contained, interdisciplinary study examines and illustrates how small particles absorb and scatter light. The authors emphasize that any discussion of the optical behavior of small particles is inseparable from a full understanding of the optical behavior of the parent material--bulk matter. To divorce one concept from the other is to render any study on scattering theory seriously incomplete.

Special features and important topics covered in this book include:
Classical theories of optical properties based on idealized models
Measurements for three representative materials: magnesium oxide, aluminum, and water
An extensive discussion of electromagnetic theory
Numerous exact and approximate solutions to various scattering problems
Examples and applications from physics, astrophysics, atmospheric physics, and biophysics
Some 500 references emphasizing work done since Kerker's 1969 work on scattering theory
* Computer programs for calculating scattering by spheres, coated spheres, and infinite cylinders
