Effect of corner reflector on field of linear radiator
Abstract
The effect of a corner reflector in the vicinity of an electric dipole on the radiation pattern of the latter is treated as a twodimensional problem and solved using two systems of coordinates, a Cartesian one and a cylindrical one with common origin 0 and zaxis. The infintely large surface method reduces the problem for the reflector crosssection and contour to an integral equation for the current density distribution induced in the reflector. This equation is in turn solved in two successive approximations, the first one corresponding to symmetric excitation. The resulting expressions for the electromagnetic field in the second approximation apply to any point in space, but they simplify for the farfield region.
