    • Abstract


      Some size dependent resonances in the extinction efficiency by small metallic particles have been considered on the basis of the exact calculations on Mie Theory of Scattering. The results may be helpful in explaining some structures in the observed interstellar extinction curve and certain unidentified interstellar diffuse absorption bands.
