Abstract

We study how the orientation of the optic axis affects single-scattering properties for small, birefringent calcite particles simulated using DDSCAT 7.1.1. We consider two irregular model particles, a flake and a rhomboid, in either a (i) fixed or (ii) random orientation. Simulations are performed for three volume-equivalent radii of 0.1, 0.45, and 1.0 μm. For each target, we repeat the computations for three sets of orientations of the optic axis. When a fixed spatial orientation of the target is considered, the simulations are significantly affected by the orientation of the optic axis. However, the effect is considerably weaker when assuming the same targets in random spatial orientation.
