Abstract

A rigorous solution is presented to the problem of scattering by a perfect electromagnetic conducting (PEMC) circular cylinder buried inside a dielectric half-space that is excited by a normally incident transverse magnetic (TM) plane wave propagating in free space. The plane wave incident on the planar interface separating the two media creates fields transmitting into the dielectric half- space becoming the known primary incident fields for the buried cylinder. When the fields scattered by the cylinder, in response to those fields incident on it, are incident at the interface, they generate fields reflected into the dielectric half-space and fields transmitted into free space. These fields, and the fields scattered by the cylinder are expressed in terms of appropriate cylindrical waves consisting of unknown expansion coefficients which are to be determined. Imposing boundary conditions at the surface of the cylinder and at a point on the planar interface, enables the evaluation of the unknown coefficients. This procedure is then replicated, by considering multiple reflections and transmissions at the planar interface, and multiple scattering by the cylinder, till a preset accuracy is obtained for the reflection coefficient at the particular point on the interface. The refection coefficient at this point is then computed for cylinders of different sizes, to show how it varies with the PEMC admittance of the cylinder, its burial depth, and the permittivity of the dielectric half-space.
