Abstract

We present a theoretical description of the scattering of a Gaussian beam by a spherical, homogeneous, and isotropic particle. This theory handles particles with arbitrary size and nature having any location relative to the Gaussian beam. The formulation is based on the Bromwich method and closely follows Kerker’s formulation for plane-wave scattering. It provides expressions for the scattered intensities, the phase angle, the cross sections, and the radiation pressure.
