Abstract

Exact-image theory is applied to the problem of electromagnetic wave scattering from a small dielectric object above an interface separating two isotropic and homogeneous media. The object is assumed to be electrically small and far enough from the interface so that its internal field can be assumed to be uniform. The approach is applicable to any scatter that can be represented by an electric dipole.
