Abstract

We analyze the scattering by polygonal cross-section lossless dielectric cylinders illuminated by an obliquely incident plane wave. The problem is formulated in terms of a system of surface integral equations opportunely devised so as to be valid for objects with edges and incident angles including the total reflection limit angle. By means of Galerkin’s method in the spectral domain with analytically Fourier-transformable expansion functions factorizing the correct edge behaviors and continuity conditions of the unknowns, convergence of exponential type is achieved and the coefficients of the scattering matrix are reduced to single integrals that can be efficiently evaluated. Numerical results for both near field and far field parameters are presented, showing the quick convergence of the method even when applied to composite cylindrical objects.
