The database contains over 8000 references to papers devoted
to various aspects of light scattering by small particles -
from exact and approximate methods to calculate the
optical properties of scatterers of different shapes and structures
to the optical constants and very special questions of light scattering
theory and its applications.
Definitely, it is impossible to collect references to all papers
on light scattering as their number is enormous and quickly growing.
The aim of the database is to cover as wide scope as possible and
thoroughly classify the references for a user to be provided with
a good start bibliography for practically any investigation on
the light scattering theory and its various applications.
Another feature of the database is inclusion of a large number of
papers published in the former Soviet Union journals and conference
These references are given in Russian but by Latin letters
to become readable by any browser (i.e. without Cyrillic fonts).
The database was created in the nineties by
from the Stepanov Institute of Physics (Minsk, Belarus), and he
continues to maintain it.
This on-line version of the database allows one
to browse the reference collection and
to search it for papers using a keyword.
