Abstract:

The scattered field from small with respect to wavelength obstacles which are mounted on an infinite, perfectly conducting plane is determined. The obstacles considered are a monopole, half-sphere, half-cylinder, half-loop and a slot. Since the reradiated field due to these obstacles can be identified with the radiation of a combination of electric and magnetic dipoles, the solution is presented as scattering dipole moments. These moments are induced in the obstacle by the incident wave and depend on the direction and polarization of the incident energy.
