The photonic nanojet shaping effect in the dielectric non-spherical microparticles is reported. The specific spatial electromagnetic field is studied by using finite-difference time-domain calculation which constitutes the so-called photonic nanojet. The dielectric non-spherical microparticle is truncated by the cutting thickness. The latitudinal and longitudinal dimensions of the photonic nanojet and its peak intensity depending on the variation of cutting thickness are numerically researched. The shape dependence of the photonic nanojet in the non-spherical microparticles has been investigated by quality criterion. The practical results are drawn concerning the possible procedures to gain the control over the properties of photonic nanojet in the non-spherical microparticles. The shaping mechanism has a significant impact on the use of photonic nanojet to distinguish nanoscale specimens.
