Paper Abstract

We apply an iterative solution approach, the method of ordered multiple interactions (MOMI), to solve the magnetic and electric field integral equations which are pertinent to scattering by a thin dielectric film bounded by a semi- infinite dielectric substrate and by a semi-infinite dielectric superstrate. The thin film boundaries are randomly rough, which is numerically generated. We consider two- dimensional geometry (invariance in the y-direction) and investigate convergence for a TM polarized incident Gaussian tapered beam.
