Abstract

Based on the Rayleigh approximation, this paper presents the electromagnetic scattering properties of the small partially charged isotropic sphere and those of a similar anisotropic sphere and then discusses the effect of surface charges on particles’ optical properties. The numerical simulation results show that the surface charges on a charged particle can enhance the scattering of the incident waves, and the effect on an anisotropic charged sphere is much greater than that on an isotropic charged particle. Therefore it is necessary to consider the medium property (isotropic or anisotropic) and electric effects of dust particles in the remote sensing of sandstorms.
