Introducing phase tracing into a computational method which combines ray-tracing with diffraction on facets.
Kaye, Paul H.
The viability of introducing phase tracing into our ray tracing with diffraction on facets model is investigated. In order to prove the method, Monte Carlo ray-tracing results for a slit, based on our diffraction formula and including phase, are compared with the Fraunhofer diffraction formula. In a next step, light scattering results obtained with this method for a long conducting column and a long dielectric column with square cross section are compared with SVM.
