Scattering Calculations Using The Extended Boundary Condition Method
Abstract
The extended boundary condition method (EBCM) is being used by many investigators to study a variety of electromagnetic (EM) problems such as the scattering of EM waves from nonspherical dielectric objects. This paper reviews briefly the theoretical development of EBCM involving the expansion of electromagnetic fields in terms of the vector spherical wave functions and solving the resulting matrix equations, and describes application of the method to specific problems: (1) scattering from layered objects, (2) nearzone scattering when both source and detector are near an object, and (3) fluorescent scattering resulting from active molecules embedded in an oblate spheroid.
