About this book

This is the 4th volume of the "Light Scattering Reviews" series devoted to current knowledge of light scattering problems and both experimental and theoretical research techniques related to their solution. This volume will cover experimental studies in the optics of light scattering media, focusing on single light scattering and radiative transfer.


Part I. Single light scattering
1. Scaled analogue experiments in electromagnetic scattering
2. Laboratory measurements of the light scatterd by clouds of solid particles by imaging technique
3. Jones and Mueller matrices: structure, symmetry relations and information content
4.Green functions for plane wave scattering on single nonspherical particles

Part II. Radiative Transfer
5. Space-time Green functions for diffusive radiation transport, in application to active and passive cloud probing
6. Radiative transfer of luminescence light in biological tissue
7. The characteristic equation of radiative transfer

Part III
8. Advances in dynamic light scattering techniques
9. Static and dynamic light scatering by aerosols in a controlled environment

I graduated from the Physical Department of the Belarusian State University in Minsk, Belarus (1983). Since then I have worked for the last 22 years in the Laboratory of light scattering media optics at the Institute of Physics (Minsk, Belarus). At the moment I am working with the SCIAMACHY algorithm development team at the Institute of Environmental Physics in Bremen (Germany). The main task is the development of new cloud retrieval algorithms for water and ice clouds as seen by the spectrometer SCIAMACHY (in space from 2002). Main results are obtained in the field of geometrical optics, asymptotic radiative transfer theory and trace gases/aerosol/cloud properties retrievals using passive remote sensing techniques. I have written three books: Light Scattering Media Optics (1999, 2001, 2004), Polarization Optics of Random Media (2003), and

Media reviews

This collective monograph was published as volume 4 of the well-established Praxis/Springer series 'Light Scattering Reviews' [...] this one is a must for any research or university library as well as for individual professionals working in the fields related to light scattering. This volume is a [...] demonstration of an advanced maturation stage of this useful series of monographs which have contributed quite significantly to thorough, systematic, and accessible exposition of the discipline of electromagnetic scattering by particles and its various applications.
