ABSTRACT
We present experimental measurements of three-dimensional electromagnetic wave scattering in the microwave frequency range, by a complex aggregate consisting of 74 primary spheres with fully known optical and geometrical properties. We measured the complete amplitude scattering matrix (or Jones matrix), from which the electric fields (amplitude and phase) with arbitrary polarization can be obtained. These results offer the opportunity to test approximate computational methods against experiments.

    The Cluster mission operated a "tilt campaign" during the month of May 2008. Two of the four identical Cluster spacecraft were placed at a close distance (~ 50 km) from each other and the spin axis of one of the spacecraft pair was tilted by an angle of ~ 4°. This gave the opportunity, for...

    The influence of the polarization-induced electric field on the wavelength and the absorption coefficient of the intersubband transitions (ISBTs) in AlxGa1-xN/GaN coupled double quantum wells (DQWs) have been investigated by self-consistent calculation. It is found that the wavelength of the...

    It is shown that an overcritical density plasma slab can be totally transparent to a p-polarized obliquely incident electromagnetic wave. High transparency is achieved due to the interference of the evanescent waves in the subcritical region. The transmission coefficient has the resonant...
