Paper Abstract

The solution of the plane electromagnetic wave scattering problem by a spherical inclusion embedded into half-space with dielectric losses is obtained. To treat the problem the translation-addition theorems for the basic vector solutions of the Maxwell's equations in spherical, cylindrical and rectangular coordinate systems together with the field series expansion techniques are used. Matching the boundary conditions for the tangential components of the electric and magnetic field at the two half-spaces interface and also at the sphere boundary allows to reduce the above mentioned problem to the infinite set of linear inhomogeneous equations. No restrictions on the half-space losses value as far as the size and complex permittivity of the spherical inclusion and its burial depth are implied. The results could be useful in sea foam-covered areas investigations and in diagnostics of the porous lossy materials.
