Abstract:

Two methods of calculating the monostatic and bistatic scattering by an open circular loop are briefly discussed. Theoretical and experimental backscatter results are presented that show how the echo area varies when a straight wire is curved into an arc of decreasing radius of curvature. For small radii of curvature, an interesting resonance phenomena is observed.
