We present here dependencies of scattered and absorbed powers of incident perpendicularly and parallel polarized microwaves by a multilayered cylinder. We consider here the normal (angle θ=90) and oblique (angles θ=60,30,5) incidence of microwave on the cylinder. The one consists of a glass core that is coated by the six anisotropic metamaterial and lossy n-Si semiconductor alternative layers. Characteristics of a cylinder with the semiconductor external layer are presented. The dispersion dependency of n-Si losses was taken into account. The metamaterial is a uniaxial anisotropic medium with the electric and magnetic plasma resonances in the frequency range from 1 until 4 GHz. The anisotropic metamaterial can include the constitutive parameters equal to zero. The multilayered cylinder has the external radius equal to 2 mm. The glass core has a radius equal to 0.5 mm. The thickness of all layers is the same. We have compared the scattered and absorbed power dependencies on the microwave polarization, the angle of microwave incidence (the normal and oblique directions of the incidence to the z-axis), and the n-Si specific resistivity. We discovered specific dependencies of scattered and absorbed powers on the parameters.
