Far-field contribution of evanescent modes to the electromagnetic Green tensor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Understanding the behavior of the evanescent part of the electromagnetic field has important implications in many branches of modern physics, such as near-field optics. Motivated by recent disagreement in the literature, we derive an expression for the far-field asymptotic behavior of the free-space electromagnetic Green tensor that is due to the evanescent modes.
