Paper Abstract

Computed results for some linear optical problems relevant to nonlinear optics in droplets are presented and discussed. (1) The electric energy density distributions inside homogeneous spheres (water droplets) illuminated with plane waves are computed using Lorentz-Mie theory and geometrical optics ray tracing. (2) The electric energy densities inside spheres illuminated by Gaussian beams are computed using an angular spectrum of plane waves approach, a technique applicable to scattering of Gaussian beams by axisymmetric objects. (3) The Q's and resonance locations of spherically symmetric, radially-inhomogeneous spheres are computed numerically. (4) The Q's and resonance locations of perturbed, homogeneous, droplets are computed using the T-matrix method. (5) The Q's and resonance locations of inhomogeneous, spherically-asymmetric droplets are computed using the T-matrix method.
