Absorption by Small Regular Non-Spherical Particles in the Rayleigh Region
Smaller particles characterized by a complex refractive index generally absorb more radiation per unit mass than larger particles. This absorption reaches a maximum in the Rayleigh region where it becomes size independent. We explore the dependence of dipolar resonant absorption on both shape and refractive index in the Rayleigh region.
