The sparse-matrix-flat-surface iterative approach has been implemented for perfectly conducting surfaces and modified to enhance convergence stability and speed for very rough surfaces. Monte Carlo simulations of backscattering enhancement using a beam decomposition technique are compared with millimeter-wave laboratory experimental data. Strong but finite(More)
A family of unified models in scattering from rough surfaces is based on local corrections of the tangent plane approximation through higher-order derivatives of the surface. We revisit these methods in a common framework when the correction is limited to the curvature, that is essentially the secondorder derivative. The resulting expression is formally(More)
We present a boundary integral method for the numerical solution of the rigorous problem of wave scattering from rough surfaces under grazing illumination. The model of a locally perturbated plane is adopted: a finite patch of rough surface has its roughness flattened at the edges. The boundary formulation unknowns are the tangential components of the(More)
We show that tomographic diffractive microscopy can be used for profilometry applications with high transverse resolution. We present an iterative reconstruction procedure, based on a rigorous wave scattering model, that permits us to retrieve the profile of rough metallic interfaces from the complex scattered field. The transversal resolution is(More)
This paper extends the results of a previous work by combining hydrodynamic and electromagnetic analytical models for the simulation of the ocean Doppler spectrum at microwave frequencies. We consider weakly nonlinear sea surfaces after the choppy wave model and incorporate them in classical and unified scattering models, namely, the Kirchhoff and weighted(More)
An approximate time-harmonic three-dimensional electromagnetic boundary-integral method, the small-slope integral equation, is combined with a series expansion of the Creamer surface representation at second order with respect to the height, denoted by Creamer (2). The resulting model provides at low numerical cost simulations of the nonlinear ocean surface(More)
dop histograms are measured in the off-specular far field speckle of disordered media under polarized and unpolarized illumination. Three surface samples with increasing roughnesses, and three bulk samples with different absorption levels, are investigated. Results show that both rough surfaces and absorbing bulks hold the incident polarization, while(More)
This work is the first in a series of two papers on the use of combined improved hydrodynamic and electromagnetic analytical models for the simulation of the ocean Doppler spectrum at microwave frequencies. Under a linear assumption for the sea surface we derive statistical expression for the main Doppler characteristics according to asymptotic scattering(More)
