Electromagnetic Wave Scattering by Small Impedance Particles of an Arbitrary Shape    [PDF]

A. G. Ramm
Scattering of electromagnetic (EM) waves by one and many small ($ka\ll 1$) impedance particles $D_m$ of an arbitrary shape, embedded in a homogeneous medium, is studied. Analytic formula for the field, scattered by one particle, is derived. The scattered field is of the order $O(a^{2-\kappa})$, where $\kappa \in [0,1)$ is a number. This field is much larger than in the Rayleigh-type scattering. An equation is derived for the effective EM field scattered by many small impedance particles distributed in a bounded domain. Novel physical effects in this domain are described and discussed.
