SCATMECH: Polarized Light Scattering C++ Class Library (Version 2.00)

Published

Author(s)

Thomas A. Germer

Abstract

A C++ object class library has been developed to distribute models for polarized light scattering from surfaces. It is the intent of this library to allow researchers in the light scattering community to fully utilive the models described in several publications by the author. Included in the library are also a number of classes which may be useful to anyone working with polarized light. The library is constructed so that it can easily be expanded to include new models. Version 2.00 contains new models for light scattering from roughness and defects in dielectric films, and for the Torrance-Sparrow model for facet scattering with shadow effects.
