Abstract

The C method is known to be one of the most efficient and versatile tools established for modeling diffraction gratings. Its main advantage is the use of a coordinate system in which the boundary conditions apply naturally and are, ipso facto, greatly simplified. In the context of scattering from random rough surfaces, we propose an extension of this method in order to treat the problem of diffraction of an arbitrary incident beam from a perfectly conducting (PEC) rough surface. For that, we were led to revisit some numerical aspects that simplify the implementation and improve the resulting codes.
