Based on the eigenfunction expansion of electromagnetic waves in a reciprocal uniaxial bianisotropic medium, an extended mode-matching method is proposed to study the scattering of an infinitely long reciprocal uniaxial bianisotropic cylinder with arbitrary cross section. Excellent convergence of the echo width is numerically verified, which establishes the reliability and applicability of the present extended mode-matching method for the two-dimensional single-body problem in which the reciprocal uniaxial bianisotropic medium has a curved surface.
