Electromagnetic scattering from a finite cylinder with complex permittivity at arbitrary orientation
The scattering of electromagnetic radiation from a finite cylinder at an arbitrary orientation was analyzed using a first order approximation to the iterative technique for the integro-differential equation first developed by Shifrin and later modified by Acquista. The frequency dependent conductivity of the cylinder was modeled using a modified Drude conductivity approach for incident radiation with a wavelength of 4 μm. The results are compared with the exact solution for an infinite cylinder and previously published data. The effect of variations in length, diameter, and conductivity of the cylinder, as well as in the angular orientation of the cylinder with respect to the incident wave vector was analyzed to determine their impact on the scattering intensity.
