forward scattering

[¦fȯr·wərd ′skad·ə·riŋ]
(physics)
Scattering in which there is no change in the direction of motion of the scattered particles.
Scattering in which the angle between the initial and final directions of motion of the scattered particles is less than 90°.

The stronger forward-scattered component of the beam continues propagating through the cloud, where it may undergo more forward scattering and eventually scatter backward towards the optical receiver.
The forward scattering is structureless, even in our state-resolved measurements.
This leads to an increase in forward scattering of UV light until it begins to compete with absorption.
In this section, the radiating VECS and the radiating contrast factor are obtained by solving the forward scattering equation for the total electric fields measured at observation points.
SSC and FSC stand for side scattering channel and forward scattering channel respectively.
Numerical simulations show that although small forward scattering can still be noticed, the cloak effectively reduces the backward scattering of the object whose radius is four times that the thickness of the cloak shell.
In real systems, however, there always exists a certain polydispersity in contrast, so that forward scattering is minimized but nonzero.
N] is the momentum of the incident particle, [sigma], is the total cross-section and [rho] is the ratio of the real to the imaginary parts of the forward scattering amplitude.
They found that though a ring dims the star slightly as the transit begins, a competing effect brightens the star by a trace: forward scattering of light by ring particles that are still off the star's edge.
In the study of light transmission and forward scattering by polymer films, the parameters of interest are direct transmittance, total transmittance and haze, as shown in Fig.
