Links to Codes to Compute Optical Properties

There are many different numerical methods and computed codes to compute the optical properties of different shapes of particles.

SCATTERLIB has codes to compute scattering by many types of particles by various numerical methods.

Mie codes:

the bhmie code of Bohren and Huffman (1983) , in different computer languages

codes from UMaine including fastMie by Wayne Slade

For nonspherical and aggregated particles, there are

T-matrix codes

and discrete dipole approximation codes:

ddscat

and

a-dda

Codes for the Computation of the Bidirectional Reflection Function for Flat Particulate Layers and Rough Surfaces:

BRDF
