Optical Properties


The interference nature of resonant Mie scattering, which is described within the Fano model, has been demonstrated. The interference is caused by interaction of an incident electromagnetic wave with reemitted waves that correspond to eigenmodes of a scattering particle. Mie scattering due to the interference can be represented in the form of cascades of resonance lines of different shapes, each of which is described by the classical Fano formula. The effect is observed in resonant light scattering by an arbitrary body of revolution and discussed in detail using the example of scattering by an infinite homogeneous dielectric cylinder.
