Abstract

We calculate light scattering properties of random irregular particles of two different classes of shape, compact Gaussian random field particles and agglomerated debris particles, at size parameters X=50 and X=32. Surprisingly, very similar angular dependencies of all nonzero scattering matrix elements are obtained for both classes in the case of nonabsorbing material. For highly absorbing particles external scattering becomes dominant, which introduces a difference in the positive polarization due to different morphologies of their surfaces.
