Optical EngineeringPlane-wave and Gaussian-beam scattering on an infinite cylinder
|Format||Member Price||Non-Member Price|
A comparison between two models of light scattering on an infinite, nonabsorbing cylinder modeling a fiber in a composite material is presented. In the first model the incident light is modeled by a monochromatic plane wave, in the second by a monochromatic wave with a Gaussian distribution of intensity over the cross section. The results of numerical simulations for the two cases are presented.
