Electromagnetic Scattering by Particles and Surfaces

Please note that Dr. Michael I. Mishchenko passed away in July 2020. We do not expect that the information presented on these Electromagnetic Scattering research pages will be updated with new data.

Lorenz-Mie FORTRAN Programs for Computing Far-Field Electromagnetic Scattering by Monodisperse and Polydisperse Spherical Particles

A detailed user guide to the far-field Lorenz-Mie program in the case of a nonabsorbing host medium can be found in the book Scattering, Absorption, and Emission of Light by Small Particles, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge (2002).

A detailed user guide to the far-field Lorenz-Mie program in the case of an absorbing host medium can be found here.

To retrieve a code, right-click on the code name and use the "Save As..." option from the menu.

  • Double-precision Lorenz-Mie program for the case of a nonabsorbing host medium: spher.f
  • Double-precision Lorenz-Mie program for the case of an absorbing host medium: spher_abs_host_2.f
