In this paper, the anomalous diffraction approximation method is improved for calculating the extinction efficiency of non-spherical particles. Through this step, the range of the refractive index of particles can be enlarged, and the improved anomalous diffraction approximation method can be applied easily to the calculation of extinction efficiency for the most kinds of non-spherical particles. Meanwhile, an optimal wavelength selection algorithm is proposed for the inversion of non-spherical

Through the improved anomalous diffraction approximation method, the computation time is substantially reduced compared with the rigorous methods, and a more accurate inversion result of particle size distribution is obtained using the optimal wavelength selection method.
