Controlling light scattering and polarization by spherical particles with radial anisotropy

Ni, Y X; Gao, L; Miroshnichenko, A E; Qiu, C W


Based on full-wave electromagnetic theory, we derive the zero-forward and zero-backward scattering conditions for radially anisotropic spheres within the quasi-static limit. We find that the near-field intensity can be tuned dramatically through the adjustment of the radial anisotropy, while the far-field light scattering diagrams are similar under the zero-forward or zero-backward scattering conditions. Generalized "Brewster's angle" for anisotropic spheres is also derived, at which the...[Show more]
