Abstract

Scattering by planar geometries with plane metal inclusions are analysed. The metal inclusions can be of arbitrary shape,and the material of the supporting slabs can be any linear (bianisotropic) material. We employ the method of propagators to find the solution of the scattering problem. The method has certain similarities with a vector generalisation of the transmission line theory. A general relation between the electric fields and the surface current densities on the metal inclusions and the exciting fields is found. Special attention is paid to the case of a periodic metal pattern (frequency selective structures,FSS). The method is illustrated by a series of numerical computations.
