Theoretical factors in modeling polarized light scattering by arbitrary particles.


The coupled dipole method has been used to model the S(34) scattering matrix element for particles of arbitrary shape. Comparison of the results of the approximate method with the exact theory for a sphere shows that the size of the units required for S(34) is much smaller than the size required for calculating S(11) with similar accuracy.
