Fortran 95 Mie Theory Library


PyMieLab can calculate optical parameters including far-field and near-field parameters. PyMieLab provides a particle refractive index database with 2841 sets of experimental data for 370 materials. PyMieLab has a friendly GUI with many interactive menu bars, tools, and buttons.

OpenSANS: A Semi-Analytical solver for Nonlocal plasmonicS

The method comprises of a generalisation of Mie theory to properly address the hydrodynamic motion of free electrons in metals and a compact S matrix formulation for the efficient treatment of multiple layers.



Fortran 95 Mie Theory Library

The library explicitly defines the spherical Bessel functions and associated Legendre polynomials. The library is optimized to the extent of removing extraneous variables and
combing loops to reduce the total number of iterations, and using Gfortran compilation options and constraints.


This is the electromagnetic field analysis program for spherical particles. The radiation force acting on the sphere can be analyzed. This is based on Mie scattering theory.

Beyond Mie Theory

Optical Forces In Optical Tweezers

This open source project by Antonio Alvaro Ranha Neves is for Mathematica implementations of optical forces in optical tweezers. It relies on the generalized Lorenz-Mie theory (GLMT) and the highly focused beam described by angular spectrum representation.
