Abstract

The effect of the scatterer surface on the shadow region is examined by using the surface integrals of the modified theory of physical optics. It is shown that the shadow geometry has a considerable effect on the structure of the edge diffracted waves. The diffracted fields for the illuminated and shadowed surface of a half-plane are evaluated in terms of Fresnel integrals and plotted numerically.
