Abstract

We calculate the intensity of the light scattered by an infinite, radially stratified cylinder. The incident light is a plane wave having an arbitrary angle of incidence and an arbitrary polarization. The Hertz potentials of the scattered wave are represented as superpositions of conical waves, and the boundary-value method is used to derive an infinite set of systems of linear equations for the expansion coefficients. The intensity and the polarization of the far-field scattered wave is expressed in terms of these expansion coefficients. Numerical results showing the angular distribution of the scattered intensity corresponding to different angles of incidence are also presented for the case of a doubly clad image-transmitting fiber illuminated by a He–Ne laser.
