RADIATIVE PROPERTIES OF SEMITRANSPARENT FIBERS AT ARBITRARY ILLUMINATION
Following from: The scattering problem for cylindrical particles
Leading to: Near-infrared properties of quartz fibers
Disperse systems in nature and technology are very diverse. In many cases, when a form of particles is near to spherical, the model of spherical particles may be used in analysis of their radiative properties. But it is obvious that this model is inapplicable for elongated particles. In this case, a theoretical description of the radiative properties of a disperse system may be developed on the basis of the exact solution for infinite cylinders.
Filamentary particles are found in nature comparatively seldom; some aerosols are similar to such particles, bacteria and viruses, and elongated soot particles are formed sometimes in flames. At the same time, filamentary particles are well kn ...
