Problem 1: An incident wave travels in free space (dielectric constant 0 , permeability 0 , wavenumber 0 0 k � � ) along the z-direction and impinges upon a cube of dielectric material with a constant permittivity of . The faces of the dielectric cube are parallel to the x-y, y-z, z-x planes respectively. The length of each side of the cube is d . The polarization of the incident electric field is along the x-axis. Use the Born approximation to calculate the scattered electric and magnetic fields in the far-field zone along the ˆ ˆ s � � k z , ˆ ˆ s � � k x , and ˆ ˆ s � � k y directions. Solution In Born approximation we have for the far-zone scattering field: exp ˆ ˆ ( ) , f s s i jkr r E r Q k k (1.1) 0 ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ , exp ( ) s i s i p i i s s V E j dV �� Q k k k k r r e e k k (1.2) d 0 0 ˆ i E E x x y z ˆ ˆ i k z 0 EM Scattering Homework assignment 1

Where ˆ i k k z , ˆ ˆ i e x , 0 ( ) p �� � � r . Note that within this approximation no wave is scattered along the ˆ ˆ s � � k x , i.e., along a direction parallel to the polarization of the incident plane wave. Along ˆ ˆ s � � k z , ˆ ˆ s � � k y , the scattered wave is polarized along ˆ ˆ i x e as ˆ ˆ 0 i s e k . The integral in (1.2) yields for ˆ ˆ s � � k y 0 0 2 0 2 ˆ ˆ exp exp 4 sin 2 V V j k k dV jky jkz dV a ka k y z r (1.3) In the case ˆ ˆ s � � k z : 3 0 2 0 0 ˆ ˆ , ˆ ˆ exp ˆ ˆ sin , s V s a j k k dV a ka k � � � � k z z z r k z (1.4) Problem 2: Repeat this calculation for a dielectric cylinder with the radius a , height h , and dielectric constant .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
