LIGHT SCATTERING FROM A CELL
We present a semi-analytical scattering solution for a system resembling a simple cell. The model of the cell includes a spherical cytoplasm surrounded by a concentric cell membrane. Contained within the cytoplasm is a nonconcentric spherical nucleus. Because of the nature of the multi-pole expansion solution, numerical results can be acquired rapidly and accurately. Because of the spherical symmetry of the components, the light-scattering Mueller matrix elements include large amplitude oscillatory structure that may not be present in actual cells.
