Abstract
A spectral approach to the Lorenz-Mie problem was adopted to obtain a pole expansion of the Lorenz-Mie coefficients in the complex variable z = 4π=(n2 - 1), where n2 is the dielectric permittivity of the scatterer. In the absence of magnetic properties (which is assumed), n is the refractive index of the scatterer. It is shown that the Lorenz-Mie coefficients are meromorphic functions of z with simple poles. The poles and the residues are functions of the size parameter x = ka = 2πa/λ and of the order of the Lorenz-Mie coefficient, l, but are independent of the material properties. This leads to a numerically efficient representation of the Lorenz-Mie coefficients.
