Mie scattering of infinite cylinder (light parallel to axis)

  1. Jun 14, 2012 #1
    I've been reading a few books on scattering of light from particles, in particular mie scattering of cylinders. At first I want to look at infinite cylinders, then finite cylinders once I understand a bit better.

    The problem is that all of the books I've looked at treat the problem where light propagates perpendicular to the axis of the cylinder, not parallel to it. Is there a book/paper somewhere which treats this case?
