Direct and Inverse Scattering of Electromagnetic Waves in Nonlinear Media

Sjöberg, Daniel LU (1999)
Abstract
Models for materials with nonlinear electromagnetic response are

examined. Three simple physical causes for nonlinear behavior are

presented: electronic polarization, molecular direction and

electrostriction. Some introductory results and approximations for

nonlinear, dispersive media are given, such as the phase-matching

criterion, Miller's rule, the Born approximation and the slowly

varying amplitude approximation. However, the emphasis is on

instantaneously reacting media, that is, materials with no or

negligible memory. For these models, the inverse scattering problem of

determining the field dependent permittivity and permeability from the
