Abstract

Using a multiple-scattering formalism, we derive closed-form expressions for the coherent reflection and transmission coefficients of monochromatic electromagnetic plane waves incident upon a two-dimensional array of randomly located spherical particles. The calculation is performed within the quasi-crystalline approximation, and the statistical correlation among the particles is assumed to be given simply by a correlation hole. In the resulting model, the size of the spheres and the angle of incidence are both unrestricted. The final formulas are relatively simple, making the model suitable for a straightforward interpretation of optical-sensing measurements.
