Alternative to Mie Theory for Analysis of Homogenous Sphere

I know that mie theory is used to analyze the absorption/scattering/extinction of a homogeneous sphere within a homogeneous dielectric medium. However, if I wanted to perform the same analysis on a sphere enclosed by two different media, is there an analytic solution to this?

Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

How by two different media? Do the media form shells? Or the lower half in one medium, the upper half in another?

One half of the sphere is embedded in a substrate, and the upper half is in air/vaccum.
