Abstract

The basic Mie formulas are explained and several useful scattering functions are defined, such as the angular Mie scattering coefficients iθ and the Mie phase function pM. Finally, the scattering pattern for the forward, sideward, and backward area is surveyed, based on data for the refractive index n=1.33.
