Abstract:

Our ability to compute the electromagnetic scattering, absorption, and extinction cross sections of randomly oriented electrically conducting thin fibrous particles has improved substantially over the past five years or so. Electronic Properties of Metals In order to be able to apply our computations to the infrared and visible, as well as the microwave case, it is necessary to build in the optical behavior of the fibers. In addition, in order to include extremely small fiber diameters, the dependence of the electrical conductivity upon particle radius must be included. These effects will now be considered.
