Paper Abstract

Spherical particles on flat surfaces produce light scattering patterns with a characteristic peak in the backscattering direction, provided that the size polydispersity is sufficiently high. This is shown for metallic particles on conducting substrates by means of a double interaction model, i.e. an approximate solution of the scattering problem. The results contain useful information about the dependence of this peak with the degree of polydispersity, the mean size of the particles, or the angle of incidence.
