  13. H. J. Metz, H. K. Dettmar, Kolloid Z. Z. Polym. 192, 107 (1963).These authors point out that the peaks in the scattering efficiency for nonabsorbing spheres are associated with particular “resonances” in the an and bn coefficients. They do not identify these with “virtual” modes and resonances of the internal fields, nor do they examine the implications for absorption and inelastic scattering processes. [CrossRef]
