Abstract : Light scattering calculations for spheroidal particles have determined a relationship between the scattering matrix and the physical features of the particles. Multiple scattering calculations for parallel cylinders show that the coupling is greatest when one cylinder is in the shadow of the other. Slightly distorted spherical droplets exhibit new resonances which are caused by mode coupling.
