Sommerfeld's forerunner in stratified isotropic and bi-isotropic media

Rikte, Sten LU (1994) In Technical Report LUTEDX/(TEAT-7036)/1-25/(1993) TEAT-7036.
Abstract
Using well-established time domain methods, Sommerfeld’s classical results

for the forerunner (the first precursor) at distant points in a homogeneous,

isotropic, and dispersive half-space are generalized to the stratified, isotropic,

and bi-isotropic slab cases, with arbitrary transient, normally incident, plane

wave excitation. The results hold at each point and impedance mismatch

cases are treated as well. As a consequence of the analysis, it is seen that also

inhomogeneities in a non-dispersive medium cause oscillations in the signal’s

early time behavior, similar to those in the dispersive medium.
