Abstract:

The report describes the results of an electromagnetic experiment which compares measurements of scattering coefficient with non-coherent and coherent theories for two, two-dimensional, two-scale targets one a good conductor aluminum, and one a lossy dielectric plaster. Included are 1 a detailed description of the construction of the two-scale scattering targets 2 a description of the experimental 25 GHz radar system used to make scattering coefficient measurements, 3 a statistical analysis of the roughness parameters of the surface 4 the results of the scattering coefficient measurements for the VV, HH, VH and HV polarization states and 5 a comparison of the measurements with scattering coefficient predictions of two-scale non-coherent and coherent backscattering theories.
