Abstract:

In this study, a method for calculating the scattering properties of a cluster of dielectric spheres was developed and group theory was applied to simplify the calculations. The scattered field as well as the scattering and absorption cross sections can be computed without any restriction on the angle of incidence of the light or on the radii and refractives indices of the spheres in the cluster.
