This paper demonstrates patterns in the multiple scattering behavior of three test cases, of which one is verified experimentally. Mie scattering patterns are known to emerge when the scattering angle is plotted versus the dimensionless parameter qR, where q is the scattering wave vector for a single particle, and R is the radius of the scattering particle. The power-law behavior of single scattering is modified, but not completely destroyed, when translated to multiple scattering situations. The predicted behavior is seen in translucent sheets, where transparent refractive index matched micro (TRIMM) particles scatter light, a case which is ideal to model with Mie scattering.
