Abstract

The diffraction of a Gaussian beam by an impedance half-plane is studied through the method of the modified theory of physical optics. An electric line source, which is defined in the complex space, is used to represent the Gaussian beam. The uniform evaluation of the diffraction integral is performed and the scattering patterns of the field are investigated for various numerical parameters of the incident wave.
