Electrodynamic properties of discrete surfaces. Part 2 — Symmetric multilayer discrete-plane surfaces
T. A. Tsaliev
The paper considers peculiarities of multilayer discrete surfaces used as antenna elements and focusing devices. Relationships for calculation of geometric parameters of such surfaces are derived. The concept of generalized Fresnel zones is introduced. Based on numerical treatment of the integral equation, the characteristics of scattered fields of these surfaces and the radiation patterns of symmetric multilayer discrete- planar surfaces are analyzed.
