Abstract

The beam-shape coefficients of arbitrary off-axis Gaussian beams in spheroidal coordinates are evaluated with a generalized Lorenz–Mie theory. The light-scattering properties of absorbing and nonabsorbing homogeneous spheroidal particles, such as the angular distribution of scattered intensity for a wide range of particles sizes and different complex refractive indices versus the magnitude and location of the beam waist, are investigated.
