Abstract:
The scattering of infrared radiation by individual spheres and cylinders on planar surfaces was measured, and a sum-of-fields theory was devised to model the data. A polarization-modulated angle-scanning tunable-wavelength infrared nephelometer was built as part of this work. Reliable data were collected for a variety of sphere/substrate and cylinder/substrate combinations. The modelling calculations were performed by FORTRAN programs, which were developed as part of this work. This model was generally successful in predicting the qualitative scattering behavior of spheres and cylinders on insulating substrates, but only partially successful for systems involving metallic substrates.
