Abstract

Within the generalized Lorenz–Mie theory framework, an analytic solution to Gaussian beam scattering by a rotationally uniaxial anisotropic sphere is presented. The scattered fields as well as the fields within the anisotropic sphere are expanded in terms of infinite series with spherical vector wave functions by using an appropriate expansion of the incident Gaussian beam. The unknown expansion coefficients are determined from a system of linear equations derived from the boundary conditions. Numerical results of the normalized differential scattering cross section are shown, and the scattering characteristics are discussed concisely.
