Electromagnetic Scattering by Particles and Surfaces

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

We would highly appreciate informing us of any problems and errors encountered with these programs. Please e-mail your questions and comments to michael.i.mishchenko@nasa.gov.
