Abstract

We present an exact calculation for the scattering of light from a single sphere made of a Faraday-active material into first order of the external magnetic field. When the size of the sphere is small compared with the wavelength, the known T matrix for a magneto-active Rayleigh scatterer is found. We address the issue of whether there is a so-called photonic Hall effect—a magneto-transverse anisotropy in light scattering—for one Mie scatterer. In the limit of geometrical optics, we compare our results with the Faraday effect in a Fabry–Perot etalon.
