The calculation of far field scattering by a circular metallic disk
Abstract
A computer program for the general problem of far field scattering by a thin, circular, metallic disk is described. This program permits incident plane EM waves of arbitrary incidence direction and polarization and computes the amplitude and phase of both components of the scattered field at any point on the far field sphere. Thus, the program is applicable to any monostatic or bistatic far field scattering geometry. The program is based on Andrejewski's rigorous eigenfunction solution to the disk scattering problem. This report describes the solution and required spheroidal functions as well as the resulting program and its use.
