Scattering of a spheroidal particle illuminated by a gaussian beam.

Abstract

An approach to expanding a Gaussian beam in terms of the spheroidal wave functions in spheroidal coordinates is presented. The beam-shape coefficients of the Gaussian beam in spheroidal coordinates can be computed conveniently by use of the known expression for beam-shape coefficients, g(n), in spherical coordinates. The unknown expansion coefficients of… (More)
