Abstract

Planewave scattering from a topological insulating (TI) sphere was studied when the relative permittivity and relative permeability of that sphere are both equal to unity, in order to examine scattering by topologically insulating surface states (TISS) by themselves. The TISS were modeled via surface charge and current densities quantitated through a surface-admittance parameter. The results indicate that the extinction and total-scattering efficiencies approach the corresponding efficiencies of a perfect electrically conducting (PEC) sphere of the same size when the surface-admittance parameter becomes very large. The extinction, total-scattering, and forward-scattering efficiencies remain smaller than the corresponding efficiencies of the PEC sphere. The backscattering efficiency can be either smaller or greater than that of the PEC sphere, depending upon the electrical size of the scattering spherical surface. By themselves, the TISS do not contribute to absorption.
