Abstract

A transverse electric (TE) polarization case of new full-wave theory of scattering from metal surfaces with one-dimensional roughness profiles was discussed. It was found that a primary field and a complete system of modal functions were simple in structure and satisfied the boundary conditions at the rough surface. The full-wave method developed by Bahar solved the system of coupled integro-differential equations and used the method of successive approximations. It was also observed that this theory, when applied to metal surfaces, improved the small-perturbation method and scatter pattern of the Kirchoff theory was found to be the average of Bahar's TE pattern.
