Elastic scattering intensity calculations at 90 degrees and 0 degrees for the transverse electric and transverse magnetic polarized light were performed at 1200nm for a 50 mu m radius and 3.5 refractive index silicon microsphere. The mode spacing between morphology dependent resonances was found to be 1.76 nm. The linewidth of the morphology dependent resonances was observed to be 0.02 nm, which leads to a quality factor on the order of 10(4).
