Abstract

The calculations of the monolayer coherent transmittance of isotropic, homogeneous, spherical scatterers is compared in the single-scattering and quasi-crystalline approximations for values of size parameters smaller than 10.0 and monolayer filling coefficients smaller than 0.6. The radial particle distribution function is described in the approximation of absolutely hard disks. The difference in calculation in the single-scattering and quasi-crystalline approximations is shown to be less than a few tenths of 1% for refractive index m=1.1-i0.0 and less than 1% for m=1.2-i0.0. A difference of 5% occurs for filling coefficients smaller than 0.4 for m=1.4-i0.0.
