Abstract

This paper deals with the problem of electromagnetic wave scattering from rough surfaces. By means of a generalized Floquet modal representation an analytic solution can be found that is valid for any Fourier-expandable surface pattern, with no limitation on the corrugation amplitude. By means of the special relativistic frame-hopping method, the motionless solution is generalized to the case of uniform translational relative motion between the surface and the observer. Plane-wave simplification techniques are employed to minimize the algebraic complexity of the field covariance transformations. A detailed signal analysis of the electromagnetic scattered field is performed in both the frequency and the time domains.
