We have the equations available for computing the reflected and transmitted electric fields in the case when a plane wave is incident on a dielectric surface.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now what I wish to do is compute similar reflected and transmitted components of the electric field due to an oscillating electric dipole. The equation for this type of electric field is available and is not of a plane wave nature. Now if we have a dielectric surface in this field, how do we go about computing the reflected and transmitted components?

I have referred to quite a few Electromagnetics textbooks but none seems to have a ready to use solution for this. Please direct me to a source that talks about this, if there is one.

Appreciate all the help.

Thanks
