Abstract

An algorithm for determining the size of dielectric spheres and cylinders by aligning measured and computed resonance locations is presented. The orders of the resonance locations need not be known a priori. The algorithm is applicable to several types of scattering and emission spectra of spheres and cylinders if the index of refraction including dispersion is known and uniform, or nearly uniform, throughout the sphere or cylinder. The algorithm performs well when tested with groups of computed resonance locations of spheres (synthetic data) and with measured fluorescence emission spectra of spheres exhibiting as many as 5 orders of resonance.
