Stratton-Chu integral in nonhomoginous medium

  1. Jun 28, 2012 #1
    Dear Forum members

    I have a question regarding the stratton-chu integral to calculate the farfield radiation pattern from a dipole.

    The theory works very well for the homogeneous medium, i.e if the emitter can be considered to be embedded in a homogenous medium.

    My question is if it is still possible to use the formalism for the case of an emitter that is close to an interface between two materials, i.e the two medium are two half spaces and the emitter is in one of the half spaces and close to boundary.

    If not, is there any other method to calculate the far field in such a situation?

    Thanks very much in advance for your time and attention
