Abstract

We present an alternative method for rigorously treating scattering from a perfectly conducting cylindrical surface. The integral equation approach or differential methods can handle simple configurations, but become cumbersome numerically because of matrix inversion. These methods become untractable when scattering from (stochastically) rough surfaces has to be calculated. Our approach can handle deterministic as well as stochastic surfaces. For the latter category we are now able to treat scattering from surfaces with features of the order of the wavelength of the incident light, a situation which cannot be dealt with in the customary Beckmann-Kirchhoff approximation.
