Abstract

Mie scattering functions for a magnetizable sphere whose relative refractive index is dependent on the externally applied magnetic field are computed for four different sizes of the sphere. It is found that Mie resonances are observed at certain critical fields when the incident light is polarized with its electric vector perpendicular to the applied field. The width of resonance as well as the critical fields shifts with the increase in size of the spheres. Results are compared with the experimentally observed scattering effects in a dispersion of magnetite spheres in a ferrofluid.
