Abstract:
A theoretical model of optical scattering in materials consisting of densely packed spherical particles is developed that can be used to predict its optical properties given its physical characteristics. The inputs to this model are the waveband of interest, the complex refractive indicies and particle size distribution of the materials that comprise the media (including any contaminants), the density and sizes of any pores in the media, and the dimensions of the media slab. The outputs of this model are the specular transmittance and emissivity vs. wavelength of the media, and it's Bidirectional Scattering Distribution Function (BSDF) versus scatter angle, wavelength, and incident polarization. The results of this model are compared to measured transmittance and BSDF data.
