This tool calculates the extinction, scattering, and absorption efficiencies of single nanoparticle (1 layer),core-shell nanoparticle (2 layer) and nanomatryushka nanoparticle (3 layer) using MIE formulation.
The engine is based on nmie code distributed by Dr. Nikolai Voshchinnikov http://www.astro.spbu.ru/staff/ilin2/SOFTWARE/nmie0.html. The recursive algorithm of Wu & Wang are used.
