Mishchenko, M.I., M.J. Berg, C.M. Sorensen, and C.V.M. Van der Mee, 2009: On definition and measurement of extinction cross section. J. Quant. Spectrosc. Radiat. Transfer, 110, 323-327, doi:10.1016/j.jqsrt.2008.11.010.

Following the recent analyses of extinction by Berg et al. [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 25, 1504-1513 (2008); J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 25, 1514-1520 (2008)], we show that although it is possible to define and measure the extinction cross section for a single particle using a detector of light facing the incident beam, this requires certain theoretical assumptions and experimental precautions.
