Scattering properties, i.e., the integral photometric characteristics, of polydisperse, randomly oriented small ice crystals modeled by finite circular cylinders at some infrared (IR) wavelengths are calculated by using the exact T-matrix approach. The effects caused by various aspect ratios and effective variances of size distributions are investigated. The results further show that scattering properties of small ice cylinders in the IR region depend strongly on wavelengths, particle size distributions with different x and ve and aspect ratios. Both the 25micrometers and 3.979micrometers together have some potential applications for remote sensing of cirrus and other ice clouds.
