Abstract

We apply the recent exact theory of multiple electromagnetic scattering by sphere aggregates to statistically isotropic finite fractal clusters of identical spheres. In the mean-field approximation the usual Mie expansion of the scattered wave is shown to be still valid, with renormalized Mie coefficients as the multipolar terms. We give an efficient method of computing these coefficients, and we compare this mean-field approach with exact results for silica aggregates of fractal dimension 2.
