Mie Scattering Theory, Intensity, Radiance, Optical Particle Counters
Mie scattering theory is often used to calculate the flux of light scattered off of small particles whose diameter is approximately the same order of magnitude as the wavelength of incident light. In many equations for the calculation of this flux, it is assumed that the area of interest is perpendicular to the ray of scattered light. This assumption does not apply to all cases such as low-cost (
