The theoretical behavior of TE-plane wave scattering from a dielectric-loaded semicircular trough in a conducting half-space is investigated. The dielectric loading is made of a circular cylinder which is partially buried in a semi-circular trough in a perfectly conducting plane. The scattered field is numerically evaluated to investigate the angular scattering pattern under the various dielectric loading conditions. The presence of the dielectric loading in the trough can substantially affect the angular scattering behavior. The difference between the TE and TM-scattering angular patterns is also observed. The field magnitude inside the trough is found to be much greater than the outside, thus indicating that the trough focuses the incident beam inside the trough.
