Anisotropic Scattering for a Magnetized Cold Plasma Sphere
Abstract: The transformation of parameter tensors for anisotropic medium in different coordinate systems is derived. The electric field for a magnetized cold plasma sphere and the general expression of scattering field from anisotropic target are obtained. The functional relations of differential scattering cross section and the RCS for the magnetized plasma sphere are presented. Simulation results are in agree with that in the literatures, which shows the method used and results obtained are correct and the results provide a theoretical base for anisotropic target identification etc.
