Electromagnetic Scattering in Disperse Media

Inhomogenous and Anisotropic Particles

V. A. Babenko, L. G. Astafyeva and V. N. Kuzmin

Electromagnetic Scattering in Disperse Media The rapid developments in the discipline of optics of scattering media and the increasing number of applications that have arisen over the past 20 years have transformed research in diverse fields such as biology and medicine, environmental science and atmospheric physics.

Electromagnetic Scattering in Disperse Media is the first book devoted to the problem of light scattering and absorption by inhomogeneous and anisotropic spherical particles. Considerable attention has been paid to various aspects of light absorption inside particles, including internal field distributions, morphology-dependent resonances, and absorption in restricted regions inside particles. It contains many results computed for polydisperse particle systems and gives detailed information on how these can be applied.

The main emphasis given to the optical properties of atmospheric aerosols is enhanced by other practical applications involving inhomogeneous and anisotropic particles described throughout the book.
