Experimental investigation of some conducting crossed gratings

The properties of a crossed grating of square pyramids and a crossed grating with hemispherical cavities to eliminate specular reflection from a conducting surface are studied experimentally. Measurements were made in the microwave range of 35 GHz. The best performance is that 99.94% of the power of a TM-polarized incident wave can be scattered into a single spectral order by a pyramidal crossed grating, while for TE polarization the reduction in specular reflection can be as high as 98%. Anti-reflection properties of a crossed grating with hemispherical cavities near normal incidence are also observed. Comparison between the behavior of triangular and pyramidal gratings of the same profile is made. Effects of the profile parameters are investigated. Basically the experimental results agree with the theoretical predictions. This investigation provides a set of experimental data to assist further numerical study. / Applied Science, Faculty of / Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of / Graduate
