We present a microscopic theory of nonlinear scattering of mesoscopic particle that maybe composed of complex molecules. We predict that the spectrum of the scattered field depends on the angle of observation. Transform theory is used to compute the third-order susceptibility for coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) of molecules with known absorption spectrum and vibrational modes. By incorporating the theory into an integral scattering formula, we develop a rigorous theory which leads to powerful numerical experimentation of nonlinear optical process in mesoscopic systems composed of complex molecules and driven by laser pulses with arbitrary shape and spectral content. We obtain an expression for spectral dependent CARS field which includes multiple internal reflection and refraction of the incident fields via Mie theory. The theory is used to study the variations of the CARS spectra and intensity on laser parameters and direction of detection. High-resolution spectra computed for hybrid CARS scheme shows that the relative intensities of the characteristic peaks in the CARS spectrum depend on the direction of detection. This effect can be explained by the interference between the linear response (absorption and dispersion) and the four-wave mixing process in the mesoscopic medium. The theory is useful for nonlinear spectroscopy, microscopy and nanophotonics involving small particles. Copyright (C) 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
