The theory of Aden and Kerker is used to compute the resonant response of large layered spheres to an incident linearly polarized plane wave. Cases considered include hollow spheres and those with transparent and absorbing cores whose diameters range from zero up to that of the particle. Both core and layer resonances are studied. The results are presented as partial wave amplitudes, energy densities, and scattered light intensities for a typical resonant mode, TE39.
