New approach to improve RCS patterns of trihedral corner reflectors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two techniques which include Physical Optics (PO) and Geometrical Optics (GO) were used to generate RCS patterns of trihedral corner reflectors. In this sense, GO was implemented on the first reflection of a triple bounce in the interior of the trihedral, while PO was applied on the plates of last two reflections. This have contributed to the development of RCS. Finally, first-order diffractions from the exterior edges of either triangular or square trihedral were considered.
