Explanation
basic search Basic search
Regular search for the keyword(s) as listed.
refined search Refined search
Additional (hidden) keywords and search options refine search results to generate less results of better quality (e.g. 'T-matrix without Toeplitz-Matrix').
extended search Extended search
The search pattern is extended, for example by adding the german equivalent term (e.g. 'Radiative Transfer' + 'Strahlungstransport').


Classic Papers on Light Scattering

Electromagnetic scattering by a homogeneous, isotropic sphere is commonly referred to as Mie theory, although Gustav Mie (1868 - 1957) was not the first to formulate this electromagnetic scattering problem. Before him Alfred Clebsch (1833 - 1872), solving the elastic point source scattering problem of a perfectly rigid sphere using potential functions and Ludvig Lorenz (1829-1891) contributed to this problem. In 1909 Peter Debye (1884 - 1966) considered the related problem of radiation pressure on a spherical particle utilizing two scalar potential functions. Therefore plane wave scattering by a homogeneous isotropic sphere is also referred to as Lorenz-Mie theory, or even Lorenz-Mie-Debye theory.

Introduction

broken links updated (16 April 2019)
In 1908 Gustav Mie published his famous paper on the colour of Gold colloids. This paper is still much cited today.
In this web page we try to collect information on the various activities that intend to somehow celebrate this hundred years of Mie's theory.

Conference on Electromagnetic and Light Scattering by Nonspherical Particles:
Theory, Measurements, and Applications

The ELS conference series combines two series: the Workshop on Electromagnetic and Light Scattering (Bremen, 1996; Moscow, 1997; Bremen, 1998) and the Workshop on Light Scattering by Nonspherical Particles (Amsterdam, 1995; Helsinki, 1997; New York, 1998). The first combined conferences were held in Vigo, Spain in 1999, in Halifax, Canada in 2000 and in Gainesville, Florida in 2002.
The conference encompasses all experimental and theoretical aspects of single and multiple scattering of electromagnetic radiation by nonspherical and heterogeneous particles.
