Paper Abstract

The current implementation of a generalization of the separation of variables method, developed to describe the scattering of electromagnetic waves on non-spherical dielectric particles, is extended to deal with non-axisymmetrical scatterers in spherical coordinates. Computations for finite hexagonal ice columns are performed and compared with results of other methods. Good agreement is obtained. Additionally, a scheme to systematically derive approximations in the treatment of non-axisymmetric particles is proposed. This scheme allows to reduce the numerical effort.
