Abstract

The electromagnetic scattering by an arbitrarily oriented elliptical cylinder having different constitutive param eters than those of the background medium is treated in this work. The separation of variables method is used to solve this problem, but, due to the oblique incidence of the source fields, hybrid waves for the scattered and induced fields are generated, thus making the formulation complicated. Moreover, because of the different wave numbers between the scatterer and the background medium, the orthogonality relations for Mathieu functions do not hold, leading to more complicated systems, compared to those of normal incidence, which should be solved in order to obtain the solution for the scattered or induced fields. The validation of the results reveals the high accuracy of the implementation, even for electrically large scatterers. Both polarizations are considered and numerical results are given for various values of the parameters. The method is exact and can be used for reference as an alternative validation for future methods involving scattering problems.
