Abstract

An analytic phase function that reduces to the Rayleigh phase function for the scattering of unpolarized light is presented and compared with the traditional Henyey–Greenstein phase function. Comparisons between the proposed phase function and the phase function for three of Deirmendjian’s polydispersions are shown and applications to radiative transfer are demonstrated.
