Light scattering by hexagonal ice cylinders with the refractive index corresponding to ice particles in the visible spectral region is considered. The angular dependence of elements of the scattering matrix for randomly and horizontally oriented hexagonal cylinders has been calculated numerically. Orientation averaging of optical characteristics over an ensemble of particles has been performed analytically with use of the ΠΆ-matrix method. Polarization characteristics of hexagonal and circular cylinders are compared.
