Abstract

Exact-image theory is applied to the problem of electromagnetic-wave scattering from a small object below the interface separating two isotropic and homogeneous media. The object is assumed to be electrically small so that it can be approximated by an electric dipole with known dyadic polarizability. Scattering from a buried small dielectric sphere is considered as an example of the theory.
