Abstract

A dielectric sphere with an eccentric spherical dielectric inclusion and an incident amplitude-modulated plane electromagnetic wave constitute an exterior radiation problem, which is solved in this paper. A solution is obtained by combined use of the Fourier transform and the indirect-mode-matching method. The analysis yields a set of linear equations for the wave amplitudes of the frequency-domain expansion of the electric-field intensity within and outside the externally spherical inhomogeneous body; that set is solved by truncation and matrix inversion. The shape of the backscattered pulse in the time domain is determined by application of the inverse fast Fourier transform. Numerical results are shown for a pulse backscattered by an acrylic sphere that contains an eccentric spherical cavity. The effects of cavity position and size on pulse spreading and delay are discussed.
