We explore the near-field concentration properties of dielectric spheroidal scatterers with sizes close to the wavelength, using an analytical separation-of-variables method. Such particles act as mesoscopic lenses whose physical parameters are optimized here for maximum scattered light enhancement in photovoltaic applications.
