Abstract

Light scattering by spherical particles in a converging beam is obtained from the earlier solution for a particle in the beam of a dipole light source by reversing the direction of energy flow so that the dipole source becomes a sink. The results are not drastically different from Lorenz–Mie scattering as long as the sink is located at a distance greater than several particle radii from the focus.
