Abstract

The scattering and absorption cross sections for electromagnetic radiation incident upon spherical particles of aluminum oxide and magnesium oxide were calculated from the Mie theory. The complex index of refraction was taken from the best available experimental data. The calculations were made for particle radii from 0.1 μ to 10 μ and a range of wavelengths from 0.5 μ to 10 μ. The results are presented in the form of tables and graphs.
