Abstract:

The radiation from arbitrary source distributions in plane stratified, anisotropic media is presented. The formal solutions are obtained by an extension of modal procedures familiar from the analysis of isotropic waveguide regions. Special attention is given to the formulation of a radiation condition which requires the flow of energy away from the sources, and to its interpretation utilizing the refractive index surfaces descriptive of plane wave propagation in an anisotropic medium. These concepts are illustrated in detail for an ionized plasma under the influence of an external steady magnetic field.
