The backscattering of light from disklike objects possessing periodic structures (e.g., resembling a wheel with spokes, hereafter called a pinwheel) or an object with a wavelength-sized deviation from a flat disk (e.g., a spherical cap) has been computed by using the discrete dipole approximation. The disks ranged in diameter from 1.5 to 2.7 microm with thicknesses from 0.04 to 0.15 microm. The goal of the study was to obtain some understanding of the differences between the backscattering of a… CONTINUE READING
