Abstract: Although numerical solutions to the electromagnetic scattering by an arbitrarily shaped object have been obtained using Waterman's T-matrix method (TMM), the general electromagnetic radiation due to an antenna of a three-dimensional (3-D) current distribution in the presence of an arbitrarily shaped object has not been well considered. In this paper, the technique of surface integral equations has been employed; and as a result, a terse and analytical representation of the dyadic Green's functions (DGFs) in the presence of an arbitrarily shaped dielectric object is obtained for the antenna radiation. In a form similar to that associated with the electromagnetic radiation in the presence of a dielectric sphere, the DGFs inside and outside of the object of arbitrary shape are expanded in terms of spherical vector wave functions. However, their coefficients are no longer decoupled due to the arbitrary surface of a 3-D object. The coupled coefficients are then determined using the surface integral equation approach, in a fashion similar to that in the T-matrix method. To confirm the applicability and correctness of the approach in this paper, a dielectric sphere, as a special case, is utilized as an illustration. It is found that exactly the same expressions as in the rigorous analysis for the inner and outer spherical regions of the object are obtained using the different approaches. As applications of the approach in this paper, radiation problems of an electric dipole in the presence of superspheroids and rotational parabolic bodies are solved.
