Abstract:

In this paper we present an analysis and calculation of scattering patterns resulting from a vertically polarized beam of electromagnetic plane waves incident on a sinusoidal surface. This model is frequently used to study scattering from periodically rough surfaces. The horizontally-polarized case is treated in a previous paper by the authors. The vector properties of this electromagnetic scattering problem are considered in this communication by extending the previous analysis to the vertically-polarized case and comparing the scattering patterns for the two polarizations.
