Abstract:

Reference 1, which appears in the Proceedings of the RADAR09 Conference at Bordeaux in October 2009, describes nonlinear currents generated by an electromagnetic wave incident on a metal surface. This paper supplements the results of 1 with a full calculation of the RCS per unit area for second harmonic generation. These results verify that the level of such emission from a metal surface is anomalously low.
