Abstract

The scattering of plane waves by dielectric particles is an age-old problem for which a complete solution was given by Gustav Mie (1908). Mie’s solution to the plane-wave case was later extended to the evanescent case in order to achieve resolutions beyond the Rayleigh limit. Solutions exist based on the multipole expansion method and group-theory method. Present work suggests an alternative solution to the scattering of evanescent waves by a spherical dielectric particle, by obtaining the scattering coefficients from Debye’s potentials as solved by Born and Wolf in the plane-wave case.
