ABSTRACT
We investigate the transmittance of fixed-length ensembles of spherical particles having average radii ranging over two orders of magnitude. The transmittance is interrogated at discrete frequencies in the terahertz regime where the particle radius is subwavelength by at least an order of magnitude. A nonmonotonic dependence of the transmittance on particle radius is observed. As a function of increasing particle size, the transmittance increases to a peak value and then decreases toward zero. Calculations of the complex effective permittivity of the ensemble yield predicted transmittance curves that accurately describe the transmittance decrease as a function of increasing particle size.

    The scanning electron microscope (SEM) method of fibre sizing assumes that all fibres lie flat on filters. This appears to be true for samples deposited from aqueous suspension, but in some airborne samples only about 60% of fibres lie flat on the filter surface and many of the rest are balanced...
