Abstract

We have devised a new iterative technique to improve the Extended Boundary Condition Method (EBCM) frequently used to solve for the scattering and absorption by lossy dielectric objects. This technique has two main features: 1) it requires an initial assumption of the external surface fields, and 2) it partitions the interior of the object into a number of overlapping subregions, thus assuring a more efficient numerical convergence. Preliminary results indicating the enhanced stability of the new iterative EBCM technique are presented.
