Angular scattering distribution and scattering cross section for a dielectric nanoparticle at an interface. (a) Angular distribution of light scattered from an r = 170 nm, n = 2, k = 0 dielectric nanoparticle in air, i.e., n = 1 (blue), at an air/n = 1.5 interface (turquoise) and at an air/n = 3 interface (magenta) (incident light from the top); (b) shows the according scattering cross sections from which the wavelengths of the quadrupole resonance were chosen for the representation of the angular distributions in (a), i.e., 502, 490, and 502 nm.
