Wave propagation and scattering involving complex media:
We use the dyadic Green’s functions to solve a variety of theoretical and practical problems involving complex (anisotropic) media. We have investigated and solved the problems of wave propagation, reflection & transmission, radiation and scattering of electromagnetic waves in the presence of such anisotropic media as well as bianisotropic media. Problems of antennas and microstrip circuits are also being treated.  Anisotropic media that we have investigated include: (i) uniaxially anisotropic medium, (ii) biaxially anisotropic medium, (iii) electrically gyrotropic (gyroelectric) medium, and (iv) magnetically gyrotropic (gyromagnetic) medium.
