ELECTROMAGNETIC SCATTERING FROM CONDUCTING CIRCULAR CYLINDER COATED BY META-MATERIALS AND LOADED WITH HELICAL STRIPS UNDER OBLIQUE INCIDENCE

Abstract:
The asymptotic strip boundary condition (ASBC) is applied to analyze the solution of the electromagnetic scattering from a conducting cylinder coated with a homogeneous linear material layer and loaded with conducting helical strips. Such homogeneous material layer can be implemented by a conventional dielectric material, a single negative (SNG) or double negative (DNG) meta-material layer. A study of different materials' constitutive parameters is presented with accordance to Drude and Lorentz material modeling. The boundary condition assumes that the strips are rounded around the coated cylinder in a helical form and both the strip's period and the spacing between the helix turns are very small and mathematically approaching the zero. Scattering due to normal and oblique incident plane waves (θi, φi) of arbitrary polarization using the series solution is also computed. A number of parametric studies were investigated to illustrate the advantages of using metamaterials compared with conventional coating materials in terms of strip's rounding pitch angle and coating layer electrical thickness variations. It is also shown that for SNG materials, modified Bessel functions are used to accept negative arguments. Coating with metamaterials proves to achieve higher forward scattering compared with conventional materials for the same electrical coating thickness.
