Mie Scattering Program with Permeabilities (MIERED)
The Mie Calculator (Reduced version) (MIERED) is a simple sequential
program for the computation of the absorption and scattering
efficiencies and the asymmetry factor of spherical particles
with a fixed radius from given optical constants $m$ and
permeabilities $\mu$. It differs
from the full version of the Mie calculator (MIE) in three ways.
It only allows the treatment of spherical particles with given
optical constants. Neither the oscillator representation nor the
treatment of ellipsoids nor the computation of Planck averages
are included. However, the file output is not restricted to the
absorption efficiencies but also the scattering efficiencies and
the asymmetry parameter are written into files. The computation of
the asymmetry parameter substitutes for the backscattering
efficiency. Furthermore, the program allows the treatment of
materials with magnetic permeabilities different from 1.
