Abstract

A spheroidal coordinate separation-of-variables solution has been developed for the determination of the internal, near-surface, and scattered fields of a spheroid (either prolate or oblate) with an embedded source of arbitrary type, location, and orientation. Presented results for (1, 0) and (1, 1) electric multipoles embedded in 2:1 axis ratio prolate and oblate spheroids (equal volume sphere size parameter equal to 20) illustrate that the presence of the spheroid interface can have a profound effect on the corresponding far-field scattering pattern. The calculation procedure could be used, for example, to model the emission of inelastic scattered light (Raman, fluorescence, etc.) from biological particles of appreciably elongated (prolatelike) or appreciably flattened (oblatelike) geometries.
