Retrieved from ” https: Rayleigh scattering of sunlight in Earth’s atmosphere causes diffuse sky radiationwhich is the reason for the blue color of the daytime and twilight skyas well as the yellowish to reddish hue of the low Sun.

Rayleigh scattering results from the electric polarizability of the particles. This espalhameento in the indirect blue light coming from all regions of the sky.

Thermal radiation heat transfer. Chakraborti, Sayan September This page was last edited on 8 Decemberat espalhamentk These give rise to energy losses due to the scattered light, with the following coefficient: This article is about the raykeigh phenomenon. 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. 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.

As previously stated, Rayleigh scattering is inversely espalhamentoo 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.

Rayleigh scattering – Wikipedia

In addition the oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere absorbs wavelengths at the edge of the ultra-violet region of the spectrum. The effect is further increased because the sunlight must pass through a greater proportion of the atmosphere nearer the earth’s surface, where it is denser. Some of the scattering can also be from sulfate particles. Rayleigh scattering is a good approximation of the manner in which light scattering occurs within various media for which scattering particles have a small size parameter.


It can occur when light espalhametno through transparent solids and liquids, and is most prominently seen in gases. Viewed from space, however, the sky is black and the sun is white.

Conversely, glancing toward the sun, the colors that were not scattered away — the longer wavelengths such rayleign red and yellow light — are directly visible, giving the sun itself a slightly yellowish hue. The fraction of light scattered by a group of scattering particles is the number of particles per unit volume N times the cross-section.

It is this dspalhamento light that gives the surrounding sky its brightness and its color. Furthermore, the inelastic contribution has the same wavelengths dependency as the elastic part.

Silica fibers are glasses, disordered materials with microscopic variations of density and rayleighh index.

Rayleigh scattering

The oscillating electric field of a light wave acts on the charges within a particle, causing them to move at the same frequency. For the stochastic distribution, see Rayleigh distribution.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. A portion of the beam of light coming from the sun scatters off molecules of gas and other small particles in the atmosphere. Views Read Edit Raylegih history.

For years after large Plinian eruptionsthe blue cast of the sky is notably brightened by the persistent sulfate load of the stratospheric gases. The resulting color, rayleign appears like a pale blue, actually is a mixture of all the scattered colors, mainly blue and green.

Espalhamento de Rayleigh

Rayleigh scattering applies to particles that are small with respect to wavelengths of light, and that are optically “soft” i. The particles may be individual atoms or molecules. 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 wavelength dependence is characteristic of dipole scattering [8] and the volume dependence will apply to any scattering mechanism.

Turner may owe their vivid red colours to the eruption of Mount Tambora in his lifetime. Retrieved 2 April Optics and Photonics News.

On the other hand, anomalous diffraction theory applies to optically soft but larger particles. All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from October Articles with unsourced statements from January Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer.

American Journal of Physics. 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 its characteristic length.

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.

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. Some works of the artist J. Here, Rayleigh scattering primarily occurs through sunlight ‘s interaction with randomly located air molecules.
