Abstract

We present a derivation of the optical theorem that makes it possible to obtain expressions for the extinguished power in a very general class of problems not previously treated. The results are applied to the analysis of the extinction of power by a scatterer in the presence of a lossless half space. Applications to microscopy and tomography are discussed.
