Abstract:

An investigation of transmission of electromagnetic radiation through non-planar media consisting of several layers of dielectric has begun. A library search of recent theoretical and experimental work in this area was conducted, and a theoretical study of the exact solutions to transmission through layered cylindrical and spherical media is underway. The library survey did not uncover any systemic experimental investigations in this area. Attempts at expanding exact solutions to obtain suitable approximations to the plane-layer cases have thus far not been successful. Several computer programs not generally available were developed to generate the spherical and half-integer Bessel Functions of both the first and second kind and are included in this report. Calculations using these functions are currently underway. Author
