    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A very efficient and accurate method to characterize electromagnetic scattering by multilayered periodic arrays of circular cylinders is presented, using the lattice sums technique, the aggregate T-matrix algorithm, and the generalized reflection and transmission matrices for a layered system. The method is quite general and applies to various configurations of two-dimensional or three-dimensional periodic arrays. The unit cell of array can contain two or more cylinders, which may be dielectric, conductor, gyrotropic medium, or their mixture with different sizes. The periodic spacing of cylinders along each array plane should be same over all layers, otherwise the cylinders in different layers may be different in material properties and dimensions.
