Abstract:

A method to calculate the electromagnetic scattering properties of a cluster of spheres of arbitrary radia and possibly complex refractive indexes is proposed. The approach takes proper account of multiple scattering effects through an appropriate addition theorem for Vector Helmholtz Harmonics which is preliminary formulated. No approximation is required but the truncation of the multipolar expansion of the scattered field. Group theory is also used to factorize the resulting system of linear nonhomogeneous equations.
