Abstract
The electromagnetic scattering properties of red blood cells were analyzed by

three different methods. The finite-different time-domain method is a general

and flexible approach and enables accurate simulations of scattering from objects

with arbitrary shape. This method was compared with two approximate

methods: the Rytov approximation and the Discrete Dipole Approximation.

The interaction of light with a red blood cell was systematically investigated

using different wavelengths and orientations of the cells. The simulations show

that the cell shape, as well as the cell volume and orientation, have a large

influence on the forward scattering.
