Abstract

The scattering process of electromagnetic plane waves by a resistive half-screen is investigated for oblique incidence. First of all, it is shown that the existing solution in the literature is not correct, because the problem was solved by considering the normal components of the electromagnetic field, in terms of which the boundary conditions cannot be expressed. Instead of these, the components of the electric field, which is parallel to the edge discontinuity, are taken into account. The diffracted fields are obtained with the aid of the method of transition boundary. The uniform field expressions are obtained by using the Fresnel function. The behaviors of the total field and its subcomponents are analyzed numerically.
