Abstract

We present numerical results concerning the properties of the electromagnetic field scattered by an infinite circular cylinder illuminated by a circular Gaussian beam. The cylinder is arbitrarily located and arbitrarily oriented with respect to the illuminating Gaussian beam. Numerical evaluations are provided within the framework of a rigorous electromagnetic theory, the generalized Lorenz–Mie theory, for infinite cylinders. This theory provides new insights that could not be obtained from older formulations, i.e., geometrical optics and plane-wave scattering. In particular, some emphasis is laid on the waveguiding effect and on the rainbow phenomenon whose fine structure is hardly predictable by use of geometrical optics.
