On the Validity of Physical Optics for Narrow-band Beam Scattering and Diffraction from the Open Cylindrical Surface
The exact formulas for the induced electric surface current (in the scattering phenomenon) and the equivalent electric surface current (in the diffraction phenomenon) on the open cylindrical surface due to an arbitrary narrow-band beam have been shown in their closed-form expressions within the context of the cylindrical harmonics, which gives information about the validity of the Physical Optics (PO) approximation. Both the Electric Field Integral Equation (EFIE) and the Magnetic Fielddoi:10.2529/piers060906142312 fatcat:jexalz5oijhingtqinalwu2rci
