The function mie3ds12 can be used to calculate the scattered far field of any (non-magnetic) material embedded in any ambient dielectric material. The function returns the scattering functions S1 and S2. The scattered far field can be calculated by
$$\begin{array}{l}{E_{1}=\frac{e^{i i v}}{-i k r} \cos \varphi \cdot S_{2}(\cos \theta)} \\ {E_{\perp}=\frac{e^{i k r}}{i k r} \sin \varphi \cdot S_{1}(\cos \theta)}\end{array} $$
Where E _{ || } is the field in the scattering plane and E _{ ⊥ } is the field orthogonal to the scattering plane. The scattering plane is defined by the incident and scattered directions. The angle θ is the angle within the scattering plane (with respect to the incident angle) and the angle φ is the angle between the incident electric field and the scattering plane.

Description |
---|---|
S = mie3ds12(u,m,x); |
The result Q is a struct which contains quantities S1, S2 which has dimensions NxM where N is the length of u and M is the length of x. The arguments are: u: this is cos(q) m: the ratio of the refractive index of the sphere to the refractive index of the ambient dielectric medium. This quantity may be complex-valued because the refractive index of the sphere may be complex. This quantity should either have a singleton value, or be the same length of x for dispersive media. x: the size parameter which is defined as 2*pi*r/lambda0*n1 where lambda0 is the free space wavelength, r is the sphere radius and n1 is the real-valued refractive index of the ambient medium. |
S = mie3ds12(u,m,x,nmax); |
nmax : the maximum number of orders to calculate for the mie coefficients. The default value is 0, and in this case the nmax = ceil(x+4*x^(1/3))+2. There is typically no need to modify the default value. |
Example
For example, lets calculate field in XY and YZ planes for 500nm light that is incident along the y axis, polarized along the z axis.
# input parameters n1 = 1; n2 = 1.5; lambda0 = 500e-9; radius = 500e-9; # calculate m,x and call mie3ds12 m = n2/n1; x = 2*pi*radius/lambda0*n1; theta = linspace(0,2*pi,1000); S = mie3ds12(cos(theta),m,x); k = 2*pi/lambda0 * n1; R = 1; # radius of 1m # XY plane: phi = 90, Etang = EP, Eperp = Ez = ES phi = 90*pi/180; Etang = exp(1i*k*R)/(-1i*k*R)*cos(phi)*S.S2; Eperp = exp(1i*k*R)/(1i*k*R)*sin(phi)*S.S1; polar(theta,abs(Etang),abs(Eperp),"","","XY plane"); legend("|EP|","|ES|"); # YZ plane: phi = 0, Etang = EP, Eperp = Ex = ES phi = 0; Etang = exp(1i*k*R)/(-1i*k*R)*cos(phi)*S.S2; Eperp = exp(1i*k*R)/(1i*k*R)*sin(phi)*S.S1; polar(theta,abs(Etang),abs(Eperp),"","","YZ plane"); legend("|EP|","|ES|");
