Paper Abstract

Mie theory describes the scattering of electromagnetic waves on spheroidal particles whose diameter is comparable to the wavelength of the incident radiation. We have implemented a parallel algorithm using graphics adapters to calculate perpendicular and parallel polarized scattered waves, from which other scattering parameters can be derived. This facilitates parallel propagation of monochromatic electromagnetic waves in scattering media. We have shown that a parallelization can reduce computation time rigorously.
