Abstract
Most models involving absorption and scattering of light by particulate matter have relied on theories that treat the scatterers as homogeneous spheres or as spherical cores centered in spherical hosts. Aggregation and scavenging processes are commonly encountered in the study of aerosol particles, frequently resulting in situations where such spherically symmetric systems are unrealistic. A theoretical study of the absorption properties of carbon grains entrained eccentrically as spherical inhomogeneities in otherwise homogeneous droplets is presented. Although the focus of the calculations discussed herein is on single inclusions, a rigorous theoretical treatment is outlined for host spheres possessing multiple spherical inclusions.
