    Summary:This paper analyzes the problem of scattering of a plane electromagnetic wave by a resistive strip grating placed on a multilayered anisotropic substrate. As the method for analysis, the procedures by Teitler and Berreman which can handle the electromagnetic fields in anisotropic medium are extended to which the space harmonic expansion is applied. The currents on the resistive strips are determined by applying Galerkin's method to the resistive boundary condition on the plane with a strip grating. Numerical examples are presented for the reflection coefficients and diffraction efficiencies. First, the results are given in comparison with the data from other publications in the case where the grating is in air or on a grounded dielectric substrate. Afterward, the examples with anisotropic media are presented. Copyright © 1992 Wiley Periodicals, Inc., A Wiley Company

    Summary:In the theory of gratings, a numerical diffraction solution must be satisfy the energy balance and the reciprocity. The matrix eigenvalues method has been presented to study the diffraction by dielectric gratings. In the method, the error of energy balance always becomes zero except for rounding error. An accuracy criterion of a solution is left as a difficult problem. This paper shows the reciprocity for the diffraction efficiencies of the reflected and transmitted waves, numerically. It is suggested that the reciprocity can be used the criterion.
  • Numerical method of applying shadow theory to all regions of multilayered dielectric gratings in conical mounting, Hideaki Wakabayashi, Masamitsu Asai, Keiji Matsumoto, Jiro Yamakita, JOURNAL OF THE OPTICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA A-OPTICS IMAGE SCIENCE AND VISION, JOURNAL OF THE OPTICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA A-OPTICS IMAGE SCIENCE AND VISION, 33(11), 2188 - 2197, Nov. 2016 , Refereed
    Summary:Nakayama's shadow theory first discussed the diffraction by a perfectly conducting grating in a planar mounting. In the theory, a new formulation by use of a scattering factor was proposed. This paper focuses on the middle regions of a multilayered dielectric grating placed in conical mounting. Applying the shadow theory to the matrix eigenvalues method, we compose new transformation and improved propagation matrices of the shadow theory for conical mounting. Using these matrices and scattering factors, being the basic quantity of diffraction amplitudes, we formulate a new description of three-dimensional scattering fields which is available even for cases where the eigenvalues are degenerate in any region. Some numerical examples are given for cases where the eigenvalues are degenerate in the middle regions. (C) 2016 Optical Society of America

    Summary:In the scattering problem of dielectric gratings in conical mounting, we have considered and formulated scattering fields using transverse electric (TE) and transverse magnetic (TM) waves.

    Summary:In the shadow theory, a new description and a physical mean at a low grazing limit of incidence on gratings in the two dimensional scattering problem have been discussed. In this paper, by applying the shadow theory to the three dimensional problem of multilayered dielectric periodic gratings, we formulate the oblique primary excitation and introduce the scattering factors through our analytical method, by use of the matrix eigenvalues. In terms of the scattering factors, the diffraction efficiencies are defined for propagating and evanescent waves with linearly and circularly polarized incident waves. Numerical examples show that when an incident angle becomes low grazing, only specular reflection occurs with the reflection coefficient 1, regardless of the incident polarization. It is newly found that in a circularly polarized incidence case, the same circularly polarized wave as the incident wave is specularly reflected at a low grazing limit.
  • Numerical Methods for Composite Dielectric Gratings Embedded with Conducting Strips Using Scattering Factors, Hideaki Wakabayashi, Masamitsu Asai, Keiji Matsumoto, Jiro Yamakita, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON ELECTRONICS, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON ELECTRONICS, E96C(1), 19 - 27, Jan. 2013 , Refereed
    Summary:We propose a new analytical method for a composite dielectric grating embedded with conducting strips using scattering factors in the shadow theory. The scattering factor in the shadow theory plays an important role instead of the conventional diffraction amplitude. By specifying the relation between scattering factors and spectral-domain Green's functions, we derive expressions of the Green's functions directly for unit surface electric and magnetic current densities, and apply the spectral Galerkin method to our formulation. From some numerical results, we show that the expressions of the Green's functions are valid, and analyze scattering characteristics by composite gratings.

    Summary:In the scattering problem of periodic gratings, at a low grazing limit of incidence, the incident plane wave is completely cancelled by the reflected wave, and the total wave field vanishes and physically becomes a dark shadow. This problem has received much interest recently. Nakayama et al. have proposed "the shadow theory". The theory was first applied to the diffraction by perfectly conductive gratings as an example, where a new description and a physical mean at a low grazing limit of incidence for the gratings have been discussed. In this paper, the shadow theory is applied to the analyses of multilayered dielectric periodic gratings, and. is shown to be valid on the basis of the behavior of electromagnetic waves through the matrix eigenvalue problem. Then, the representation of field distributions is demonstrated for the cases that the eigenvalues degenerate in the middle regions of multilayered gratings in addition to at a low grazing limit of incidence and some numerical examples are given.
  • Availability of resistive boundary condition for thin metallic gratings placed in conical mounting, H Wakabayashi, J Yamakita, M Asai, H Inai, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON ELECTRONICS, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON ELECTRONICS, E87C(9), 1560 - 1567, Sep. 2004 , Refereed
    Summary:The scattering problem by metallic gratings has become one of fundamental problems in electromagnetics. In this paper, a thin metallic grating placed in conical mounting is treated as a lossy dielectric grating expressed by complex permittivity and thickness. The solution of the metallic grating by using the matrix eigenvalue, calculations is compared with that of the plane grating by using the resistive boundary condition and the spectral Galerkin procedure, and the availability of the resistive boundary condition for thin metallic gratings in conical mounting is investigated. In order to improve the convergence of the solutions of thin metallic gratings, the spatial harmonies of flux densities which are continuous function instead of electromagnetic fields are used.

    Summary:Diffraction from a uniaxial chiral slab with a two-dimensional periodic array of conducting patches is analyzed by the matrix-based approach. Equatorial anisotropy is assumed for the chirality and permittivity whose optical axis is parallel to the plane of incidence. In the analysis, the total fields are given by the superposition of the current-dependent scattering fields, which are expanded in terms of the two-dimensional space harmonics and the incidence fields. The coupled mode equations for the equatorial uniaxial chiral media give the general solutions of fields as superpositions of elliptically polarized eigenmodes. The unknown currents on the patches are determined by applying the method of moments to the boundary conditions of the conducting array. In the numerical computations, the polarization characteristics of diffracted waves are investigated considering the design parameters. (C) 2004 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Summary:The spectral Galerkin procedure is often used to analyze scattering by metallic gratings. The resistive boundary condition is applied to metallic gratings that are assumed to be zero-thickness plane gratings. However, it is difficult to simulate plane gratings without knowing the limits of thickness in the application of such boundary conditions. In this report, the relations between a plane metallic grating and a thin dielectric grating with complex permittivity are investigated by using the conventional method for dielectric gratings. From numerical results, the effectiveness of resistive boundary conditions is discussed. (C) 1998 Scripta Technica.

    Summary:4 x 4 matrix-based analysis of electromagnetic waves scattered anisotropic media are presented. In the analysis, the total fields are given as sum of the fields which exist even if the apertured plane are replaced by a ground plane and the fields scattered From the magnetic currents within the apertures. The scattered fields are expanded in terms of two-dimensional Floquet modes. Expression of each fields are obtained through eigenvalue problem for 4 x 4 coupled wave matrix. Unknown magnetic currents in the apertures are determined by applying Galerkin's method to the continuity condition about the magnetic fields in the apertures. Calculated results for isotropic cases are compared with other results for the complementary problem available in the literature using Babinet's principle. Further numerical calculations are performed in the case of gratings with polar-type anisotropic slab.

    Summary:We present a 4 x 4 matrix-based analysis of scattering from a two-dimensional rectangular resistive plane gratings placed on an anisotropic dielectric slab. The solution procedure used is formulated by extending the 4 x 4 matrix approach[14]. The fields are expanded in terms of two-dimensional Floquet modes. Total fields can be given as sum of primary and secondary fields whose expression are obtained through eigenvalue problem of coupled wave matrix. Unknown currents on resistive patches are determined by applying Galerkin's method to the resistive boundary condition on resistive grating. Results are compared with other numerical examples available in the literature for isotropic cases. Further, numerical calculation are performed in the case of gratings with polar-type anisotropic slab.

    Summary:Electromagnetic power absorption in multilayered tissue media including anisotropic muscle regions whose principal dielectric axes (that is, muscle fibers) have various directions are analyzed by using 4x4 matrix method. Numerical calculations in 10 kHz-10 MHz show the effects of orientation of muscle fibers and polarization of incident wave on absorbed power density in tissues.

    Summary:An analysis and numerical calculation of a leaky wave propagating in a magnetic waveguide with a resistive strip grating are presented. The analysis is formulated by a matrix. A characteristic equation of the waveguide is derived by applying the Galerkin method to a resistive boundary condition expressed by a Green function in a spectrum region for a magnetic material and also by a surface current density which is expanded in terms of functions. A numerical calculation is made for a leaky region where the effect of a surface resistance and magnetic loss are considered. A step function and a function with a singularity are used in expanding a surface current density. The validity of limiting expansion terms and the convergence of solutions are discussed for not only a propagation constant but also a root mean square error of the resistive boundary condition and a surface current density.
