The electromagnetic scattering from finite-length dielectric fibers with a diameter much smaller than the wavelength and for a perpendicular incidence case is considered. The induced fields are assumed to be uniform on the cross section of the fiber. This yields a one-dimensional integral equation for the inner field which is solved by employing Galerkin’s method. Numerical results for the scattering amplitude are obtained for specific cases. In addition, it is shown that the energy finiteness criterion is satisfied.
