Paper Abstract

This paper presents an analytical theory describing excitation of a semi-infinite electromagnetic crystal by plane electromagnetic wave. A three-dimensional crystal with orthorhombic elementary cell, formed by scatterers which can be substituted by point dipoles with known polarizability and fixed orientation is considered. The closed-form analytical formulae for the amplitudes of excited modes and Floquet harmonics of scattered field for the semi-infinite electromagnetic crystal are derived in terms of the infinite crystal eigenmodes wavevectors. Generalized Ewald-Oseen extinction principle for electromagnetic crystals under consideration has been formulated. It is extended for electromagnetic crystals of general kind characterized by three-periodical dielectric permittivity distribution.
