Abstract

Scattering of electromagnetic waves from a perfectly electrical conducting (PEC) cylinder of circular cross-section, coated with uniaxial non-magnetic chiral anisotropic medium, was discussed. A conducting sheath helix structure with adjustable pitch angle exists over the outer surface of coated cylinder, which is interfaced with the free-space. Under the uniform parallel polarized plane wave with fixed oblique incidence angle, the echo widths were determined emphasizing the other relevant scattering-related parameters (e.g. scattering/extinction efficiency etc.), taking into account different pitch angle values (of the sheath helix) and the kinds of coating mediums. The results revealed that the coating of negative uniaxial chiral medium causes enhancement in scattering efficiency (of the scatterer). Also, the scattering efficiency was found to be the same as the extinction efficiency, thereby yielding vanishing absorption of the medium. The obtained results were also compared with the situation of vanishing chirality of coating medium over the PEC cylinder; the echo width and scattering efficiency both decrease in this case.
