We show that submicrometer silicon spheres, whose polarizabilities are completely given by their two first Mie coefficients, are an excellent laboratory to test effects of both angle-suppressed and resonant differential scattering cross sections. Specifically, outstanding scattering angular distributions, with zero forward- or backward-scattered intensity, (i.e., the so-called Kerker conditions), previously discussed for hypothetical magnetodielectric particles, are now observed for those Si… CONTINUE READING
