Abstract:

The results of extensive calculations for a wide range of polarizabilities of anisotropic sp eres are described. Also, a theory for scattering from anisotropic disks is presented, and the results are compared with those for spheres. This latter model is applicable to the description of the scattering from truncated spherulites in thin films. It is concluded that the principal difference in scattering patterns between spheres and disks is in the sub V case. Author
