Abstract:
Thin dielectric sheet (TDS) approximation and electromagnetic (EM) boundary conditions are considered together to derive out a set of integral equations as an alternative to the impedance boundary condition (IBC) method to solve the electromagnetic scattering from thin dielectric-coated conductors. Only with discretizing the induce current on the conductor surfaces and solving an integral equation similar to that for a PEC, the scattering fields from the whole coating system (electric or magnetic material coating) are computed. Both the electric field integral equation (EFIE), magnetic field integral equation (MFIE) and their combination form are presented. These equations are converted to a matrix equation by Galerkin's method and then solved with multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) to obtain the far fields scattering from these coated objects.
