Abstract

A previously developed [Appl. Opt. 34, 5542 (1995)] theoretical procedure for the calculation of the internal and the near-surface electromagnetic fields for nonabsorbing spheroidal particles with arbitrary monochromatic illumination has been generalized to permit solutions for absorbing (i.e., complex relative index of refraction) spheroidal particles. Calculations are presented that demonstrate the general effects of absorption on the internal and near-surface electromagnetic-field distributions for the particular case of a plane wave that is incident upon a 2:1-axis-ratio oblate spheroidal particle.
