Rayleigh-Gans theory of light scattering by liquid crystals filled with cylindrical particles

Lednei, M.F., Pinkevich, I.P., Reshetnyak, V.Yu. and Sluckin, T.J. (2001) Rayleigh-Gans theory of light scattering by liquid crystals filled with cylindrical particles Journal of Molecular Liquids, 92, (1-2), pp. 139-146. (doi:10.1016/S0167-7322(01)00186-6).

Record type: Article


Light scattering cross-sections by the director inhomogeneity near small cylindrical particles in a nematic cell are calculated in the Rayleigh-Gans approximation. We use the Percus-Yevick approximation to account for interference effects and study the influence of the boundary conditions on the particle surface as well as the effect of an external electric field on the angular dependence and on the magnitude of the light scattering cross-section.
