On the Far‐Zone Electromagnetic Field of a Horizontal Electric Dipole Over an Imperfectly Conducting Half‐Space With Extensions to Plasmonics Academic Article uri icon


  • ©2017. American Geophysical Union. All Rights Reserved. Second-order asymptotic formulas for the electromagnetic fields of a horizontal electric dipole over an imperfectly conducting half-space are derived using the modified saddle-point method. Application examples are presented for ordinary and plasmonic media, and the accuracy of the new formulation is assessed by comparisons with two alternative state-of-the-art theories and with the rigorous results of numerical integration.
