Abstract:

The effects are assessed on back scattering from a simple plasma configuration of a class of incident electromagnetic wave patterns which bears a closer resemblance to actual radar field pat terns. Thus, for the first phase effort a halfspace of uniform plasma uniform electron density is exposed to a linearly polarized incident field with a lobe pattern similar to patterns actually achieved and with a variable parameter capable of sharpening up or broadening out this pattern. The axis of the main lobe is directed obliquely with respect to the interface separating the plasma and the free-space, the angle between the normal and the main lobe axis constituting another variable parameter in the study. Finally the distance of the radar the same radar is assumed to be transmitting and receiving the present analysis from the vacuum-plasma interface is adjustable, and the plasma strength is also adjustable.
