Retrieved 2 Espalhamemto Rayleigh scattering results from the electric polarizability of the particles. For the wireless multipath propagation model, see Rayleigh fading. For years after large Plinian eruptionsthe blue cast of the sky is notably brightened by the persistent sulfate load of the stratospheric gases. Chakraborti, Sayan September Retrieved from ” https: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. It can occur when light travels through transparent solids and liquids, and is most prominently seen in gases.

Rayleigh scattering of sunlight in Earth’s atmosphere causes diffuse sky radiationwhich is the reason for the blue color of the daytime and twilight skyrayligh well as the yellowish to reddish hue of the low Sun. T f is a fictive temperaturerepresenting the temperature at which the density fluctuations are “frozen” in the material.

The resulting color, which appears like a pale blue, actually is a mixture espalhamdnto all the scattered colors, mainly blue and green. Views Read Edit View history. Rayleigh scattering is an important component of the scattering of optical signals in optical fibers.

The particle therefore becomes a small radiating dipole whose radiation we see as scattered light. In locations with little light pollutionthe moonlit night sky is also blue, because moonlight wspalhamento reflected sunlight, with a slightly lower color temperature due to the brownish color of the moon. Contains a good description of the asymptotic behavior of Mie theory for small size parameter Rayleigh approximation.


Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer. Because the particles are randomly positioned, the scattered light arrives at a particular point with a random espaohamento of phases; eespalhamento is incoherent and the resulting intensity is just the sum of the squares of the amplitudes from each particle and therefore proportional to the inverse fourth power of the wavelength and the sixth power of its size.

Furthermore, the inelastic contribution has the same wavelengths dependency as the elastic part. This removes a significant proportion of the shorter wavelength blue and medium wavelength green light from the direct path to the observer. For the magnetic phenomenon, see Rayleigh law.

Rayleigh scattering – Wikipedia

The moonlit sky is not perceived as blue, however, because at low light levels human vision comes mainly from rod cells that do not produce any color perception Purkinje effect. InLord Rayleigh published two papers on the color and polarization of skylight to quantify Tyndall’s effect in water droplets in terms of the tiny particulates’ volumes and refractive indices. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. American Raylfigh of Physics.

Calaméo – Espalhamento de Rayleigh

Inwhile attempting to determine whether any contaminants remained in the purified air he used for infrared experiments, John Tyndall discovered that bright light scattering off nanoscopic particulates was faintly blue-tinted. The fraction of light scattered by a group of scattering particles is the number of particles per unit volume N times the cross-section.

Some of the scattering can also be from sulfate particles. The wavelength dependence is characteristic of dipole scattering [8] and the volume dependence will apply to any scattering mechanism. Rayleigh scattering espalhamenti a good approximation of the manner in which light scattering occurs within various media for which scattering particles have a small size parameter.


Scattering by particles similar to, or larger than, the wavelength of light is typically treated by the Mie theorythe discrete dipole approximation and other computational techniques. Gives a brief history of theories of why the sky is blue leading up to Rayleigh’s discovery, and a brief description of Rayleigh scattering.

The amplitude of light scattered from within any transparent dielectric is proportional to the inverse square of its wavelength and to the volume of material, that is to the cube of espalhamentto characteristic length.

For wave frequencies well below the resonance frequency of the scattering particle normal dispersion regimethe amount of scattering is inversely proportional to the fourth power of the wavelength. On the other hand, anomalous diffraction theory applies to optically soft but larger particles.

However, the Sun, like any star, has its own spectrum and so I 0 in the scattering formula above is not constant but falls away in the violet. As previously stated, Rayleigh scattering is inversely proportional to the fourth power of wavelength, so that shorter wavelength violet and blue light will scatter more than the longer wavelengths yellow and especially red light.

The reddening of the sun is intensified when it is near the horizon because the light being received directly from it must pass through more of the atmosphere. Espalhaento results in the indirect blue light coming from all regions of the sky.

Some works of the artist J. It espalnamento this scattered light that gives the surrounding sky its brightness and its color.
