Abstract

Physical optics (PO) is utilized to analyze scattering by checkerboard-patterned structures. It is observed that it can predict the RCS along non-specular directions. The locations of the scattered major lobes using PO and array theory are compared with finite elements method (FEM). Moreover, closedform solutions developed using PO are used to design nonuniform checkerboard surfaces to enhance the RCS-reduction bandwidth. The PO-based results compare well with data obtained by measurements.
