An integral-equation method is used to derive simple expressions for the field scattered by infinitely long chiral cylinders of elliptic cross sections; the derived expressions are applicable when the cross-sectional dimensions are electrically small. Reductions for the scattering of plane waves are obtained. The derived results can be extended to thin strips.
