Abstract

The extended boundary condition method was used to determine the effect imperfections in small glass and metal shells have on scattered light at 10.6 μm. The results indicate that imperfections cause a shift in the locations of the minima in the differential scattering curve, a change in the extinction efficiency, and the presence of depolarized components for off-axis orientation of the object. Among these, the presence of and changes in the depolarized component are most sensitive to imperfections. We compute the depolarized scatter from shells with types I, II, and III defects and discuss the potential of light scattering as a characterization tool for laser fusion targets
