Wave scattering by small bodies was discussed by Rayleigh in 1871 (see Rayleigh (1964)) and by many authors afterward. Rayleigh understood that the main term in the scattered field is the dipole radiation, and this field is image where a is the characteristic size of the small body. The scattered field is proportional to the induced dipole moment P, and this moment is proportional to the volume V of the small scatterer, to the ...
