The problem of electromagnetic wave scattering from an elliptical plasma cylinder in the presence of an external oblique magnetic field is investigated. The electromagnetic waves are landed obliquely on the plasma column. Knowing the dielectric permittivity tensor of the plasma column, the electric potential and the electric field inside and outside the plasma column are obtained for the long-wavelength waves. The graphs of the electric field profile and pattern scattering are presented. Also, the dependence of those graphs on the incident angle, the geometrical dimensions of the plasma column and the magnetic field angle are analyzed. The physical justifications based on the theory of Fresnel’s transmission coefficients for describing the graphs, have been presented. Moreover, the effective factors on the shift of the resonance frequency are investigated. Finally, to verify the accuracy of the obtained results, some limiting cases are discussed.
