The complete set of dyadic Green's functions (DGFs) for an electrically gyrotropic medium is obtained using a new formulation technique, which consists of a matrix method with dyadic decomposition in the k-domain. The analytic expressions for DGFs are represented in a unique form in terms of characteristic field vectors that exist in an electrically gyrotropic medium. It is shown that the dyadic decomposition greatly facilitates the calculation of an inverse operation, which is crucial in derivation of Green's functions. The DGFs found here can be used to solve electromagnetic problems involving the ionosphere and new types of anisotropic materials such as ceramics and advanced composites.
