mie scattering

Mie scattering is a wave scattering or light scattering similar to Rayleigh scattering, except that in Mie scattering the scattering particles are large in relation to the wavelength

. Mie scattering occurs in radio waves and in optical fib ers and is due to impurities and manufacturing errors. It can be caused by manufacturing tolerances in the production of optical fibers, which are minimal deviations of the optical fiber from its ideal cylindrical shape or other manufacturing tolerances, such as microcurvatures. As with any other scattering, Mie scattering causes light signals to leak out of the optical fiber.
