Abstract

In this paper, approximate formulas are derived for the electromagnetic pulse due to a delta-function current in a horizontal electric dipole on the planar boundary between a homogeneous isotropic medium and one-dimensionally anisotropic medium. The components of the electric field consist of two delta-function lateral pulses which decrease with the amplitude factor 2 and travel along the boundary with different velocities and different amplitudes. Also, it is noted that the formulas for the time-dependent magnetic field components obtained by Fourier transforms from the approximate formulas in the frequency domain are not adequate.
