Paper Abstract

This manuscript discusses investigations into currents induced in linear conductors. The induced current is a useful indicator of the amount of scattering an electromagnetic field encounters in the presence of a linear conductor, and hence, the ease with which such a linear conductor could be sensed using electromagnetic radiation. The variation of induced current with several parameters is assessed using Method of Moment calculations. The final portion of the presentation will involve a comparison of the modeling results with acquired experimental data. Such comparisons are important for benchmarking theoretical models and will undoubtedly stimulate ongoing research.
