Scattering from cylindrical objects 4 Introduction The system has rotational symmetry but, of course, the incident plane wave is not rotationally symmetric Nonetheless, we can still analyze the problem using the ‘natural’ solutions of the wave equation in cylindrical coordinates First, consider scalar waves in a homogeneous medium x y z 2 2 0 k � � 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 0 k z In cylindrical coordinates 2 2 k � �

Scattering from cylindrical objects 7 Vector wave equation These were the solutions in a homogeneous medium At the first sight the scattering problem for a cylinder can now be easily solved: just solve the Bessel and Hankel waves outside and inside the cylinder (if dielectric) and match them at the interface But there are two problems: We have to deal with a vector problem and a vector wave equation: EM fields are vector fields and have a polarization.
