Abstract

An investigation of the coherent transmission and reflection coefficients of a monolayer of spherical scatterers as a function of their size, optical constants, and concentration is carried out. An analysis is performed of the quasi-crystalline approximation of the multiple-wave scattering theory and on the single-scattering approximation (SSA). The results permit determining the limits of applicability of the SSA to the layers with the partial ordering of spherical scatterers in analyzing the phases of the transmitted and the reflected waves. The phase of the transmitted and the reflected waves is investigated in the conditions of the quenching effect. It is shown that in such a case small changes in the refractive index of particles can cause dramatic phase changes. This effect can be used to modulate the light-wave phase, e.g., by electrically controlled composite liquid-crystals films.
