New analytical solutions for the local optical characteristics (extinction and absorption coefficients, asymmetry parameters of phase functions) of spherical polydispersions composed of comparatively large particles are derived. The geometric optics (GO) approximation is used to solve the problem. For the accuracy of the GO approximation to be improved, the edge effects were taken into account. A comparison with the data obtained by the use of the Mie theory shows a satisfactory accuracy of our… CONTINUE READING
