Overview

A self-contained treatment of light scattering within the framework of classical electromagnetic theory and linear optics. Treats absorption and scattering of light on an equal basis. Examines absorption and scattering in all types of electromagnetic radiation from radio to ultraviolet wavelengths. Discusses the optical behavior of bulk matter. Balances theory and experimentation. Contains three computer programs for calculating absorption and scattering by spheres and coated spheres, and infinite cylinders. Covers surface plasmons and photons in small particles.

Meet the Author

Craig F. Bohren is Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Pennsylvania State University. He is the author of two popular scientific books, Clouds in a Glass of Beer (for which he received the American Meteorological Society's Louis J. Battan Author's Award) and What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks?, also available from Wiley.

Donald R. Huffman
is Regents Professor of Physics at the University of Arizona. In 1983 he and colleague Wolfgang Kratschmer produced the first sample of C60, buckminsterfullerene. The pair was honored with the MRS medal and shared in the 1994 Hewlett-Packard Europhysics Prize.
