A metallic wire embedded in the dielectric substrate leads to frustration of the total internal reflection at the interface between dielectric and free space. The scattering by a gold cylinder is studied in order to exploit the light for hidden objects optical diagnostics. The p-wave incidenting by the angle close to total reflection with the frequency near plasmonic resonance is treated by the modified boundary elements method. The magnetic and electric fields at the interface are calculated. The scattering diagrams are found in near and far field.
