Abstract The objectives of this paper are twofold. First, the paper developed an improved algorithm to perform light scattering calculations by coated spheres. The improved algorithm was implemented in FORTRAN90 as a subroutine to allow flexible application of the code. Second, the new program was applied to the characterization of composite aluminum nanoparticles. In this application, multiple elements of the Mueller scattering matrix were measured at multiple angles to infer the properties of the na... Title of program: CMIE Catalogue Id: AEFX_v1_0 Nature of problem Among various scientific and engineering applications, it is highly desirable to have an efficient, reliable, and flexible program to perform scattering calculations for coated spherical particles. Though several programs are publicly available and can perform such calculations, they are designed for more complicated scatterers (non-spherical, multilayered particles etc.). As a result, their efficiency and reliability are usually not satisfactory when applied to coated spheres. Therefore, this p ...
