Mie Scattering in the Time Domain. Part I. The Role of Surface WavesJournal of the Optical Society of America A: Optics Image Science and Vision
AbstractWe computed the Debye series p = 1 and p = 2 terms of the Mie scattered intensity as a function of scattering angle and delay time for a linearly polarized plane wave pulse incident on a spherical dielectric particle and physically interpreted the resulting numerical data. Radiation shed by electromagnetic surface waves plays a prominent role in the scattered intensity. We determined the surface wave phase and damping rate and studied the structure of the p = 1, 2 surface wave glory in the time domain. (C) 2011 Optical Society of America
