Scattering from Particles on a Plane Surface
In this chapter, we study the scattering of electromagnetic waves from particles near to or deposited on the plane surface that separates two homogeneous media of different optical properties. The plane surface will be termed the interface, whereas we will call accessible half-space the one in which the particles and the detecting instrumentation are located. The medium that fills the accessible half-space is assumed to be nonabsorptive and to have, therefore, a real refractive index.
