Effect of dielectric characteristics and the radius of circular cylindrical particles on the lidar return formation for linearly polarized sounding radiation is analyzed based on numerical model estimates. Some results of model calculations for polydisperse ensembles of ice crystals and soot particles with typical transverse radii rm = 0.1–16 μm are presented. The estimates are given for the radiation wavelengths λ = 1.06 and 10.6 μm. The elements of a scattering phase matrix for randomly oriented circular cylinders of a finite length are compared with analogous elements for chaotically oriented elongated spheroids is for the purpose of testing the algorithm.
