Four‐dimensional relativistic scattering of electromagnetic waves from an arbitrary collection of moving lossy dielectric spheres

Four ‐ dimensional (4D) relativistic scattering of electromagnetic waves from an arbitrary collection of uniformly translational moving lossy dielectric spheres is discussed. Two reference frames,

An Efficient Method for Calculating the Doppler Spectrum of an Arbitrarily Shaped Object in Uniform Motion

In the article, an efficient numerical method for calculating the spectrum of the scattering fields of an arbitrarily shaped object in uniform motion is proposed. This method relies on the frame



Lorentz invariance of absorption and extinction cross sections of a uniformly moving object

The energy absorption and energy extinction cross sections of an object in uniform translational motion in free space are Lorentz invariant, but the total energy scattering cross section is not.

Time-domain electromagnetic scattering by a sphere in uniform translational motion.

Scattering by a uniformly translating sphere of a pulse that modulates the amplitude of a linearly polarized plane wave was formulated using the frame-hopping method involving a laboratory inertial

Electromagnetic Scattering by a Moving Small Particle

The problem of scattering of a plane electromagnetic wave by a small particle which is moving uniformly in vacuum is investigated. On the basis of the covariance of Maxwell's equations and the

Mid-infrared Extinction and Fresh Silicate Dust Toward the Galactic Center

We interpret the interstellar extinction observed toward the Galactic center (GC) in the wavelength range λ = 1–20 μm. Its main feature is the flat extinction at 3–8 μm whose explanation is still a

An analysis is presented of scattering of an electromagnetic linearly polarized plane wave by a multilayered sphere. The focus is on obtaining a computational form of the Mie coefficients for the

The limitation of electron mean free path in small silver particles

By evaluating, with help of Mie's theory, absorption measurements of spherical silver particles — (between 24 and 210 Å in diameter) — suspended as colloid in photosensitive glasses we found that the

Plane Wave Scattering Response of a Simply Moving Electrically Small, Chiral Sphere

Abstract The plane wave scattering response of an electrically small, isotropic chiral sphere moving with a constant velocity in free space has been obtained. The analysis involves the Lorentz


Dust grains may be accelerated to relativistic speeds by radiation pressure, diffusive shocks, and other acceleration mechanisms. Such relativistic grains have been suggested as primary particles of

Optical phonons of small crystals

The long wavelength optical phonons of ionic crystals give rise to dipole-dipole forces, whose long range nature causes the vibrations to depend on the size and shape of the crystal sample. This

Computational Electrodynamics the Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method

This paper presents background history of space-grid time-domain techniques for Maxwell's equations scaling to very large problem sizes defense applications dual-use electromagnetics technology, and the proposed three-dimensional Yee algorithm for solving these equations.
