B05: Scattering and Diffraction (2)

Tuesday, August 19  08:00-09:20,  Room #19

Session Chairs: Ludger Klinkenbusch, Paul Smith

The Session will review topics covering a wide range of scattering and diffraction problems, including edge diffraction, high-frequency methods, hybridization with high-frequency methods, use of artificial structures for optimal control of wave propagation, scattering from disordered media, and potential applications. Study of scattering from non-linear/anisotropic media as well as mathematical problems will also be emphasized. In addition, scattering and diffraction by canonical structures will be considered. Of interest might be different types of illuminating fields, such as plane waves, rays, and beams.
