Workspace Method opt_prop_sptFromData


Calculates monochromatic optical properties for all scattering

In this function the extinction matrix and the absorption vector
are calculated in the laboratory frame. An interpolation of the
data on the actual frequency is the first step in this function.
The next step is a transformation from the database coordinate
system to the laboratory coordinate system.

Output of the function are ext_mat_spt and abs_vec_spt, which
hold the optical properties for a specified propagation direction
for each scattering element.
