We investigate the scattering of polychromatic plane light wave incident upon a system formed with two anisotropic particles in different distance. The analytical expression for the spectrum of the scattered field is derived. Numerical examples show the phenomena of spectral shifts and spectral switches of the scattered field. The influences of the scattering direction and the difference of the particles on the spectral switch are illustrated.
