Abstract

On the basis of calculations under the discrete dipole approximation and a proposed extended model of nested ellipsoids for bipolar droplets, the changes in optical properties of a spherical liquid-crystal droplet, caused by a change in director configuration under the influence of an external field, have been considered.
