Abstract

Angular scattering functions over the range of angle of observation θ=0°(2.5°)180°, and α=0.1, ϕ=0°(15°)75°; α=5.0 and 10.0, ϕ=0°(5°)85° have been calculated for infinitely long circular cylinders at oblique incidence with m=1.46, where α is the size parameter and ϕ is the tilt angle. The equivalence of the cross components i12=i21 is noted. As the cylinder is tilted, the structure of the angular patterns becomes smoother and resembles the dielectric-needle approximation.
