TM scattering by a dielectric cylinder in the presence of a halfplane
Abstract
The problem considered is the transverse magnetic (TM) scattering by a dielectric cylinder in the presence of a perfectly conducting halfplane. An integral equation, involving the halfplane Green's function in its kernel, is obtained for the equivalent volume currents representing the dielectric cylinder. This integral equation is solved by the method of moments. Numerical results are compared with measurements for the echo width of a dielectric slab on a halfplane. The dielectric slab surface impedance and the fields inside the dielectric are also shown.
