Mie Solution to Maxwell’s Equations for Scattering of an Electromagnetic Plane Wave

Mie solution is a rigorous Maxwell’s solver for the problem of absorption and scattering of an electromagnetic plane wave by a spherical particle with an arbitrary radius and refractive index. The resulting scattering effect is highly dependent on the size of the particle. According to its characteristics, scattering can be classified into Rayleigh scattering, Mie scattering, and Geometric Optics. The full Mie solution is included in VirtualLab Fusion, and the scattering by spherical particles with different radii of spheres is investigated.
