Abstract

An iterative approach to the scattering of light from a finite dielectric cylinder first developed by Shifrin and extended by Acquista is applied to cases where the phase shift is <2, and the cylinder is arbitrarily oriented. It is found that the first 2 orders of the iteration converge to within 1% when the aspect ratio (length/diameter) of the cylinder is as small as 20. The results are compared to the exact theory for infinite cylinders, and the effects of finite size are calculated and discussed.
