ABSTRACT: Vectorial complex ray model has been developed to describe the scattering of smooth surface object of arbitrary shape. In this model, the property of a wave  curvature of wavefront is integrated in ray model, such that all waves are described as vectorial complex rays of five parameters: amplitude, phase, direction of propagation, polarization and curvature matrix of its wavefront. At each interaction of a ray with the surface of the object, the ray direction is determined by the vector Snell law, the divergence or convergence of the wave is calculated by the wavefront curvature (WFC) and the phase shift due to focal line is evaluated according to CWF. The total scattered field is the superposition of the complex amplitude of all orders of the rays emergent from the object. Thanks to the simple representation of the wave, this model is very suitable for the description of the interaction of an arbitrary wave with an object of smooth surface and complex shape. The applications of the model to 2D scattering of a plane wave by an infinite elliptical cylinder and a spheroid particle are presented. The particle can be absorbing and its refractive index can also be less than unity.Antennas, Propagation & EM Theory (ISAPE), 2012 10th International Symposium on; 01/2012 
Article: Measuring the light scattering and orientation of a spheroidal particle using inline holography
[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The light scattering properties of a horizontally and vertically oriented spheroidal particle under laser illumination are experimentally investigated using digital inline holography. The reconstructed wave field shows the bright singular points as a result of the condensed beam formed by a transparent spheroidal particle acting as a lens. The inplane (θ) and outofplane (ϕ) rotating angles of an arbitrarily oriented spheroidal particle are measured by using these scattering properties. As a feasibility test, the 3D orientation of a transparent spheroidal particle suspended in a microscale pipe flow is successfully reconstructed by adapting the proposed method.Optics Letters 07/2014; 39(13):39153918.

ABSTRACT: A semiempirical highfrequency formula is developed to efficiently and accurately compute the extinction efficiencies of spheroids in the cases of moderate and large size parameters under either fixed or random orientation condition. The formula incorporates the semiclassical scattering concepts formulated by extending the complex angular momentum approximation of the LorenzMie theory to the spheroid case on the basis of the physical rationales associated with changing the particle morphology from a sphere to a spheroid. The asymptotic edgeeffect expansion is truncated with an optimal number of terms based on a priori knowledge obtained from comparing the semiclassical Mie extinction efficiencies with the LorenzMie solutions. The present formula is fully tested in comparison with the Tmatrix results for spheroids with the aspect ratios from 0.5 to 2.0, and for various refractive indices m<sub>r</sub> + im<sub>i</sub>, with m<sub>r</sub> from 1.0 to 2.0 and m<sub>i</sub> from 0 to 0.5.
