Paper Abstract

From very simple theoretical considerations, it is shown that the physical optics approximation can be improved by taking into account the shape of the surface of the diffracting object. The theory has been numerically implemented for both polarizations, as well for perfectly conducting surfaces as for metallic or dielectric objects
