Special Issue Information
Few research topics are as broad and pervasive as electromagnetic scattering. Undeniably, electromagnetic scattering phenomena are behind many wireless and radio devices. From radar systems to mobile telecommunications, from medical devices to innovative materials, the study of electromagnetic interactions and scattering is fundamental to develop applications that exploit electromagnetic waves. Although the initial research in the field dates back centuries ago, many unresolved theoretical issues are still there. At the same time, novel applications of electromagnetic scattering are continuously emerging. A detailed description of the many areas in which scattering is involved is well beyond the scope of this short summary. Based on the wavelength, applications may be very different, as well as the techniques used to analyze and simulate the electromagnetic propagation. Starting from low-frequency problems and embracing the whole spectrum up to optics and photonics, the goal of this Special Issue is to provide a comprehensive collection of state-of-the-art papers dedicated to electromagnetic scattering theory and applications. Therefore, we invite qualified scientists in this field to submit their valuable contributions to this Special Issue. Original research works, as well as tutorials and review papers, are welcome. Topics include, but are not limited to the following:
- Electromagnetic scattering theory
- Numerical and computational techniques (e.g., simulation methods, open-source codes)
- Inverse scattering and remote sensing
- Electromagnetic scattering and information theory
- Scattering effects originated by different kinds of targets and situations (e.g., scattering by canonical objects, complex structures, moving obstacles; scattering by innovative materials and nanoparticles; Raman scattering and plasmonic effects)
- Scattering measurements and applications in civil, industrial, and medical frameworks (e.g., energy harvesting, cloaking, radar, antennas, and next-generation telecommunications)
- Future perspectives and unconventional applications
