Abstract

Scattering of a 1D Airy beam light sheet by a chiral sphere is numerically studied within Mie theory and the plane-wave spectrum method. To testify to the validity of our code and method, the results of scattering intensity of a chiral sphere by an Airy beam light sheet reducing to a homogeneous isotropic sphere are compared with those in existing literature, which shows that these results are in good agreement. Influences of different parameters on differential scattering cross sections in the far field are investigated in detail, including the chiral parameters, sphere radius, and beam position. It is found in the scattering intensity of an Airy beam by a chiral sphere that the chiral sphere, which is compared with a homogeneous isotropic sphere, can decrease the scattering intensity in a region, and the scattering intensity distribution is sensitive to the x0 position of the Airy beam.
