Abstract

Glauber's approximation method valid at high energy is used to study light scattering by a stratified sphere. The scattering amplitude is obtained in a simple closed form. The resulting efficiency factors and intensities of the scattered light are numerically evaluated for dielectric bubbles and wet dielectric balls and are shown to agree well with the exact values from Mie's method.
