Absorption and Scattering of Light by Small Particles

Treating absorption and scattering in equal measure, thisself-contained, interdisciplinary study examines and illustrateshow small particles absorb and scatter light. The authors emphasizethat any discussion of the optical behavior of small particles isinseparable from a full understanding of the optical behavior ofthe parent material--bulk matter. To divorce one concept from theother is to render any study on scattering theory seriouslyincomplete.

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