Paper Abstract

We study the scattering of light from almost closed cylindrical cavities ruled on a highly conducting flat surface. We consider the case where the shape of each cavity can be described by an arbitrary multivalued function of the coordinates. By using the multilayer modal method, which combines the multilayer approximation with the R-matrix propagation algorithm, we investigate the electromagnetic response of this kind of scatterer when it is illuminated by s or p polarized plane waves. Our results show that for both polarizations this system exhibits a resonant behavior manifested by sharp variations in the curves of scattered intensity versus wavelength which are associated with strong intensifications of the near field. The wavelengths at which the resonance occur are intimately connected with the eigenmodes of a single cavity.
