On the basis of optical property of cube corner retroreflector (CCR), a new perception and calculation approach for diffraction aperture of CCR in two different forms is presented. The relationship between diffraction apertures and incident light with six different combinations of reflection order and incident angle is established. Far-field diffraction patterns of CCR under various incident conditions are also provided.
