Abstract

A simple analytic method is provided for approximating Mie theory over an experimentally accessible range of angles and particle sizes. The approximate and Mie results for scattering by spheres with circumference-to-incident-wavelength ratios of 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 are compared for angles between 0° and 60°
