Rayleigh-Gans-Born Light Scattering by Ensembles of Randomly Oriented Anisotropic Particles

Abstract

A formula for the electromagnetic scattering amplitude is presented. Using the Rayleigh-Gans-Born approximation, we apply it to the calculation of Stokes matrices for ensembles of randomly oriented anisotropic particles. Two types of anisotropy are treated in detail: particles of any shape with a variable scalar refractive index n(r)δij and spherical particles with a constant tensor refractive index nij. For a monodisperse ensemble of the second type, we describe a method of extracting from data a shape parameter γ. One may be able to generalize this method to yield structural information for a wider class of ensembles.
