Abstract

This paper presents the scattering solution for a finite dense layer of cylinders irradiated by an arbitrarily polarized plane wave at a general incident direction. The theoretical formulation utilizes the effective field approach and quasi-crystalline approximation to derive the governing equations for the propagation constant and amplitudes of the effective waves. The finite layer thickness gives rise to effective waves propagating in both the forward and backward directions inside the dense medium. Formulas are developed for the far-field coherent and incoherent scattered intensities, as well as the extinction and scattering cross sections of the dense layer. The forward peak of the incoherent scattered intensity is shown to be shifted to the propagating direction of the effective waves. The influence of incident direction, layer thickness, and solid volume fraction on the scattering properties is illustrated by means of a numerical example.
