Detecting the Orientation of a Metallic Cylinder Embedded in a Dielectric Shell

Application ID: 19871

A metallic cylindrical rod is hidden inside a spherical dielectric shell and its orientation is unknown. By studying the polarization-dependent scattered field of a cylindrical object and performing a parametric sweep as a function of polarization angle, the rod is detected for the polarization angle where the scattered field is highest. The model uses a linearly polarized plane wave for the background field and computes the far-field radiation patterns

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
