Line Source Excitation of an Array of Circular Metamaterial Cylinders: Boundary Value Solution and Applications
A rigorous semi-analytical solution for electromagnetic scattering from an array of parallel circular cylinders of arbitrary radii and positions due to a line source excitation is developed. The cylinders can be any of three materials: metamaterial, dielectric, perfect electric conductor or a combination. Two different applications are presented here; the use of the characteristics of metamaterial to enhance the performance of corner reflector antennas, and the creation of a plane wave in the near field from an array of conducting cylinders excited by a line source.
