Scattering from an elliptical cylindrical plasma for electromagnetic waves with wavelength much greater than the dimensions of the plasma cross-section
The distribution of the electric potential inside and outside a cold plasma column with elliptical cross-section when electromagnetic waves scatter from it are obtained. It is assumed that the wavelength of incident wave is much greater than the dimensions of the cross section of the plasma column. The electrical potential inside and outside a magnetized elliptical plasma column for an anisotropic scattering process are obtained. The graphs of the ratio of the electric field inside the plasma and the incident electric field versus the incident angle, the geometrical dimension of the elliptical plasma column and cyclotron frequency are presented separately. Finally, scattering of the same waves from an elliptical cylindrical inhomogeneous isotropic cold plasma is also investigated.
