Abstract:
An exact analytic solution is presented to the problem of scattering of a plane wave from a perfect electromagnetic conducting (PEMC) elliptic cylinder, using the method of separation of variables. The formulation is carried out by expanding the incident as well as the scattered electromagnetic fields in terms of appropriate angular and radial Mathieu functions and a set of expansion coefficients. The incident field expansion coefficients are known, but the scattered field expansion coefficients are unknown. Imposing the boundary conditions at the surface of the elliptic cylinder leads to the determination of the unknown expansion coefficients in closed form. Results are presented as normalized scattering widths for elliptic cylinders of different sizes and PEMC admittances, to show the effects of these on scattering.
