Abstract

Mie theory is a powerful method to model electromagnetic scattering from a multilayered sphere. Usually, the incident beam is expanded to its vector spherical harmonic representation defined by beam shape coefficients, and the multilayer sphere scattering is obtained by the T-matrix method. However, obtaining the beam shape coefficients for arbitrarily shaped incident beams has limitations on source locations and requires different methods when the incident beam is defined inside or outside the computational domain or at the scatterer surface. We propose a 3D angular spectrum method for defining beam shape coefficients from arbitrary source field distributions. This method enables the placement of the sources freely within the computational domain without singularities, allowing flexibility in beam design. We demonstrate incident field synthesis and spherical scattering by comparing morphology-dependent resonances to known values, achieving excellent matching and high accuracy. The proposed method has significant benefits for optical systems and inverse beam design. It allows for the analysis of electromagnetic forward/backward propagation between optical elements and spherical targets using a single method. It is also valuable for optical force beam design and analysis.
