Paper Abstract

An approximate analytic expression for the coefficient of optical extinction by a polydisperse plate crystal system is derived within the framework of physical optics. Numerical investigations of the extinction coefficient of a system of oriented ice plates in optical plane range is represented in the paper. Each wavelength dependence of extinction has a certain specific feature, which may be used to estimate the average size of the ice plates. It is shown that oriented ice plates can cause a noticeable wavelength dependence of the extinction coefficient of a crystal cloud.
