Abstract

Rayleigh scattering by an infinitely long, circular tube with a helical permittivity dyadic is analysed using an integral equation formalism. When the tube is irradiated by either a TE or a TM polarized plane wave, the scattered field is copolarized. For other types of incident plane waves, the vibration ellipse of the far-zone scattered field can differ from that of the incident plane wave.
