Abstract

We present a theoretical approach to the problem of mode scattering by a spherical object that is placed inside a circular dielectric waveguide. This approach is based on the separation-of-variables method for each subsystem, namely, the spherical inclusion and the circular dielectric cylinder, and on the concept of the generalized recursive T-matrix algorithm for multilayered structures. We apply the technique to the backward and the forward scattering of a quasi-optical beam in the form of the fundamental HE11 mode by a sphere inside a circular hollow dielectric waveguide. The results calculated for the perfectly conducting spherical objects inside the circular hollow dielectric waveguide are compared with corresponding measured data of the backward- and the forward-scattering characteristics at the 4-mm wave band.
