Theoretical description of light scattering by single particles is a well-developed field, but most of it applies to particles located in vacuum or non-absorbing host medium. Although the case of absorbing host medium has also been discussed in literature, a complete description and unambiguous definition of scattering quantities are still lacking. Similar situation is for simulation methods – some computer codes exist, but their choice is very limited, compared to the case of vacuum. Here we describe the extension of the popular open-source code ADDA to support the absorbing host medium. It is based on the discrete dipole approximation and is, thus, applicable to particles with arbitrary shape and internal structure. We performed test simulations for spheres and compared them with that using the Lorenz-Mie theory. Moreover, we developed a unified description of the energy budget for scattering by a particle in a weakly absorbing host medium, relating all existing local (expressed as volume integrals over scatterer volume) and far-field scattering quantities.
