Abstract

The scattering efficiency and backward component of the scattered flux have been calculated for infinitely long, hollow cylinders with real indices of refraction of 1.5, 2.0, and 2.5; ratios of inner diameter to outer diameter of 0.0, 0.01, 0.10, 0.50, 0.90, and 0.99; and outer circumference to wavelength ratios of 0.12(0.02) 6.00. Values were obtained for the cases of incident radiation parallel polarized and perpendicularly polarized. A generalized computer subroutine has been made available for the calculation of the amplitude functions, as well as the above functions, for any arbitrary values of the parameters.
