Abstract

The Foldy-Lax hierarchy of equations for the scattering of electromagnetic waves by a monolayer of spheres was reduced to a set of algebraic equations and solved. The Percus-Yevick equation was used to describe the spatial correlation between the particles. Calculations of the optical densities of monolayers of Se spheres of diameters 0.2–0.3 μ were in good agreement with experimental results on particle-migration imaging films. The calculation also predicts an optimal particle size for such films.
