We present a database containing light scattering quantities of randomly oriented dielectric spheroidal particles in the resonance region. The database has been generated by using a thoroughly tested T-matrix method implementation. The data possess a defined accuracy so that they can be used as benchmarks for electromagnetic and light scattering(More)
In this paper we discuss the influence of two different sets of weighting functions on the accuracy behavior of T-matrix calculations for scalar scattering problems. The first set of weighting functions is related to one of Waterman's original approaches. The other set results into a least-squares scheme for the transmission problem. It is shown that both(More)
We present the methodological background, the range of applicability, and the on-line usage of two software packages, MIESCHKA and CYL, which we have developed for light-scattering analysis on nonspherical particles. MIESCHKA solves Maxwell's equations in a rigorous way but is restricted to axisymmetric geometries, whereas CYL is an approximation for finite(More)
We present what we believe to be the first results of a light-scattering analysis on several Chebyshev particles characterized by higher orders. Chebyshev particles of comparatively lower orders were used in the past to study the effects of nonspherical but concave geometries in remote sensing applications. We will show that, based on the developed(More)
