The optical properties of matter are based on the coupling of the incident electromagnetic radiation to oscillators within the material. The oscillators could be electrons, ions or molecules. Close to a resonance the dielectric function indicates strong dispersion and might be negative.
The scattering problem for electromagnetic waves by perfect conducting bodies of revolution is very important for many researchers. The Method of Moment (MoM) has been used for solving the problem of scattering by a three dimensional body of revolution. The radiation boundary
This project explains the investigation I’ve accomplished, and partially will do, during my time as a PhD learner in the laboratory of Applied Optics. Caused by circumstances beyond the range of this book, this includes three quite diverse projects. The first 2, including gas sensing and measuring on paper with ellipsometry, have been discontinued, while the third one, measuring fluorescence with a computer screen and web camera, is in full progress and will be until I complete my studies.
An efficient method for analyzing the scattering of electromagnetic waves from a bi-isotropic body is developed in this dissertation. Although the techniques developed is applicable for analyzing wave scattering from an arbitrarily shaped bi-isotropic body, it can hardly be used in an
