Paper Abstract

Numerical results are presented to show the interactive electromagnetic scattering from two air bubbles in water. The results are derived using the translational addition theorem originally employed by W. Trinks to solve the two sphere scattering problem, as well as a recursive definition of the translational addition theorem coefficients developed by J. H. Bruning and Y. T. Lo who also summarize simplifications to the theorem developed by later researchers. The computer program calculates the forward scattering extinction coefficients and the elements of the Mueller transformation matrix. Besides extinction calculations, side scattering resonance predictions are made. The interactive resonance phenomena for the two spherical scatterers show an approach to modeling the transition between single scatterer to bulk scatterer behavior.
