Reflection of electromagnetic plane waves from a moving ferrite surface


  • R. S. Mueller


The power reflection coefficient is derived for an electromagnetic H wave incident on a semi-infinite magnetized ferrite medium, moving perpendicular to the plane of incidence. Both the speed of the moving media and the anisotropy of the ferrite contribute to hybrid modes of the reflected and transmitted electromagnetic field components. Double refraction at an anisotropic boundary is not new but what is interesting in this article is the effect of the speed of the moving ferrite on both the propagation constants and the power reflection coefficient.
