Paper Abstract

By introducing the concept of distinct wave propagation vector (DWPV), this paper proposes formulations of near-field version of Physical Optics (NFPO) and Michaeli's equivalent edge currents (NFEEC) to be adaptable for near-field electromagnetic (EM) scattering computation. Moreover, this method can be easily extended to other high-frequency scattering prediction techniques, which is attractive for applications such as target-seeker encounter simulation and others. We arrive at exactly the same formula for deriving the DWPV as yielded in Legault's work. While Legault presented more rigorous mathematical formulation and phase error analysis, this paper provides an alternative interpretation of the key formula based on the DWPV concept, which is much easier to understand.
