The Mie Theory Calculator

This software was developed by Dr. Ivan Charamsinau as part of his Ph.D. thesis on photodynamic therapy for cancer treatment.

This program calculates the light scattering and absorption of small particles. Small particles are those with a diameter on the order of the wavelength of the electromagnetic wave (light) incident upon them. Scattering of light from large macroscopic particles can be treated with geometrical optics. This program solves Maxwell's equations to predict the percentage of light scattered and absorbed by particles. Simple spherical and composite core-shell particles are considered.
