Paper Abstract

1407_42Localized scalar and electromagnetic wave solutions in a variety of complex environments will be reviewed. Like their free-space counterparts, these acoustic and electromagnetic localized wave (LW) solutions can be optimized so that they are localized near the direction of propagation and their original amplitude is recovered out to extremely large distances from their initial location. Pulses with these very desirable localized transmission characteristics may have a number of potential applications in the areas of directed energy transmission, secure communications, and remote sensing.
