Kokhanovsky, Alex A.
Optics of light scattering media.
Chichester ; New York : John Wiley : Praxis, 1999
(OCoLC)624973869
Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: Alex A Kokhanovsky
ISBN: 0471972606 9780471972600
OCLC Number: 40473784
Description: x, 217 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm.
Contents: Introduction: light field; particles; radiative transfer; scattering theory. Single light scattering: particles small compared to the wavelength; particles compared to the wavelength; particles large compared to the wavelength; particles with the refractive index close to the refractive index of a host medium; particles with the refractive index large comparatively to the refractive index of a host medium; layered particles. Multiple light scattering: radiative transfer equation; thin layers; thick layers; isotropically light scattering layers; highly anisotropically light scattering layers; strongly absorbing media; weakly absorbing media. Light scattering and radiative transfer in close-packed disperse media: single light scattering by densely packed large particles; multiple light scattering in disperse media with densely packed particles. Applications: radiative characteristics of natural media; image transfer; remote sensing and inverse problems; bio-optics; planetary optics. Appendices: refractive indices; exact solutions of light scattering problems for uniform, two-layered and optically active spherical particles; special functions; light scattering in Internet; phase functions.
