The optical size and intrinsic material properties of scattering particles introduce inherent restrictions on their scattering patterns. We show that large size, core-shell dielectric structures with spherical symmetry provide the necessary flexibility for exciting higher-order spherical modes and, consequently, allow us to control the directivity of the scattered radiation. Significant scattering can be generated over angular domains that were formerly believed to be accessible only to dipolar scattering. (C) 2015 Optical Society of America
