Abstract

Mie scattering theory is used to calculate the efficiency factors for absorption by microscopic dielectric spheres. Resonances in the efficiency factors for absorption and resonances in the amplitudes of the electric and magnetic multipoles which occur in an expansion of the fields inside the dielectric sphere are discussed. Several trends in the strengths and width of the various resonances as functions of the absorption coefficient of the sphere, size parameter, multipole order, and multipole resonance number are given. A formal solution for elastic (Mie) and inelastic (Raman) scattering by microscopic particles is derived from the extinction theorem. With this background, some implications of the resonances in the interpretation of absorption, fluorescence, and Raman scattering by microscopic particles are discussed.
