Abstract

Integral equations are developed to determine the scattering and absorption of electromagnetic radiation by thin walled cylinders of arbitrary cross section and refractive index. Numerical data are presented at wavelengths in the ir for hollow, circular, and hexagonal cross-section cylinders which simulate columnar sheath ice crystals. The numerical procedures are economical for cylinders whose perimeters are less than about fifteen free-space wavelengths.
