Abstract

A finely stratified cylinder model (FSCM) for calculation of the scattered fields of infinitely long, radially inhomogeneous, circular cylinders normally illuminated by electromagnetic plane waves is introduced for the first time, to our knowledge. Because of its capability of using a very large number of layers (more than 80,000), the model is useful for both continuous and discontinuous refractive-index profiles. Numerical results agree well with published solutions for radially inhomogeneous cylinders; for cylinders with a dimensionless size parameter larger than 60, results obtained with the FSCM agree with the geometric optics for both continuous and discontinuous refractive-index profiles.
