Electromagnetic Wave Scattering from Rough Penetrable Layers


We consider scattering of time-harmonic electromagnetic waves from an unbounded penetrable dielectric layer mounted on a perfectly conducting infinite plate. This model describes for instance propagation of monochromatic light through dielectric photonic assemblies mounted on a metal plate. We give a variational formulation for the electromagnetic scattering problem in a suitable Sobolev space of functions defined in an unbounded domain containing the dielectric structure. Further, we derive a Rellich identity for a solution to the variational formulation. For simple material configurations and under suitable non-trapping and smoothness conditions, this integral identity allows to prove an a-priori estimate for such a solution. A-priori estimates for solutions to more complicated material configurations are then shown using a perturbation approach. While the estimates derived from the Rellich identity show that the electromagnetic rough surface scattering problem has at most one solution, a limiting absorption argument finally implies existence of a solution to the problem.
