Abstract

The Rayleigh approximation is known to be designed only for small ellipsoidal scatterers. We suggest an approach that allows one to find a simple, often analytical, long-wavelength approximation for nonellipsoidal particles. We apply the approach to axisymmetric scatterers and utilize Chebyshev particles to study the main properties of the obtained approximation. To a certain degree, it can be considered as an extension of the Rayleigh approximation to nonspheroidal scatterers.
