Abstract

Light scattering by a spherical particle with radial anisotropy is discussed by extending Mie theory to diffraction by an anisotropic sphere, including both the electric and the magnetic anisotropy ratio. It is shown that radial anisotropy may lead to great modifications in scattering efficiencies and field enhancement, elucidating the importance of anisotropies in the control of scattering. The capacity for nondissipating damping is demonstrated for anisotropic spheres with different signs in radial and transversal permittivities.
