The recent development and extension of the method of moments technique for analyzing electromagnetic scattering by arbitrary shaped three-dimensional homogeneous lossy dielectric objects is presented based on the combined field integral equations. The surfaces of the homogeneous three-dimensional arbitrary geometrical shapes are modeled using surface triangular patches, similar to the case of arbitrary shaped conducting objects. Further, the development and extensions required to treat efficiently three-dimensional lossy dielectric objects are reported. Numerical results and their comparisons are also presented for two canonical dielectric scatterers—a sphere and a finite circular cylinder.
