Scattering Calculator for Suspension of Spherical Particles

Use this routine to calculate the angular dependent scattering intensity of dielectric spheres based on Mie-theory. Moreover it provides the scattering length ( l) and the reduced scattering length or transport mean free path (l*), which is also given with a correction for positional correlations (l*').
The data is calculated as a function of particle concentration (volume fraction).


 

 
Positional correlations are treated on the level of the Percus-Yevick approximation.
This approximation is considered to be valid up to a volume fraction of about 0.5.
