Abstract

The behavior of light waves on scattering from an ellipsoidal quasi-homogeneous particle with arbitrary orientation is discussed within the accuracy of the first-order Born approximation. It is shown that the orientation of a particle plays an important role for the spectral density and for the spectral degree of coherence of the scattered field. Numerical result shows that, when the ellipsoidal particle features rotational symmetry, the profile of the far zone distribution is governed by the polar angle of a particle’s orientation, while the orientation of the far zone distribution is governed by the azimuthal angle of a particle’s orientation.
