Sun, B., P. Yang, G. Kattawar, and M.I. Mishchenko, 2017: On Babinet's principle and diffraction associated with an arbitrary particle. Opt. Lett., 42, no. 23, 5026-5029, doi:10.1364/OL.42.005026.

Babinet's principle is widely used to compute the diffraction by a particle. However, the diffraction by a 3-D object is not totally the same as that simulated with Babinet's principle. This letter uses a surface integral equation to exactly formulate the diffraction by an arbitrary particle and illustrates the condition for the applicability of Babinet's principle. The present results may serve to close the debate on the diffraction formalism.
