Abstract

In this paper, we introduce an efficient numerical method to characterize the multiple scattering by random discrete particles illuminated by Bessel beams with arbitrary incidence. Specifically, the vector expressions of Bessel beams that perfectly satisfy Maxwell’s equations in combination with rotation Euler angles are used to represent the arbitrarily incident Bessel beams. A hybrid vector finite element–boundary integral–characteristic-basis function method is utilized to formulate the scattering problems involving multiple discrete particles with a random distribution. Due to the flexibility of the finite element method, the adopted method can conveniently deal with the problems of multiple scattering by randomly distributed homogeneous particles, inhomogeneous particles, and anisotropic particles. Some numerical results are included to illustrate the validity and capability of the proposed method and to show the scattering behaviors of random discrete particles when they are illuminated by Bessel beams.
