Abstract

A spheroidal coordinate separation-of-variables solution has been developed for the determination of the internal, near-surface, and far-scattered electromagnetic fields for irregularly shaped elongated (prolatelike) and irregularly shaped flattened (oblatelike) particles with arbitrary monochromatic illumination. Calculated results are presented, for both plane-wave and focused-Gaussian-beam illumination, which demonstrate the effects of particle geometry on the internal, near-surface, and far-scattered-field distributions.
