The scattering properties of a homogeneous elliptic cylinder with a confocal dielectric or magnetic coating are investigated analytically. The method of separation of variables is used to determine, exactly, the field distributions in each region for both transverse electric and transverse magnetic excitations. The technique can be easily extended to handle any number of layers. The behavior of the scattered field in the far zone is illustrated with numerical results for different core and coating material types, axial ratios, and electrical sizes.
