According to the electromagnetic (EM) wave scattering field of charged spherical particles, we derived the amplitude ratio and phase difference of the transverse components of the scattered electric field. We found that in the direction perpendicular to the incident direction of the EM waves, the amplitude ratio and phase difference are linearly dependent on the surface potential. For particulate systems, the surface electric potential and relative refractive index of a charged particle are mathematically expressed by amplitude ratio and phase difference, and a method to estimate the surface potential and the relative refractive index are proposed based on the observation of EM wave signals.
