Abstract

In this STTR proposal, we propose a novel computational technology for analyzing millimeter wave and sub-millimeter wave scattering from complex and electromagnetically extended objects and environments. The core of our formalism lies in a technique for rapidly calculating and coherently adding fields produced by different scatterer constituents, ranging from conducting, flat surfaces to penetrable sheets and volumes. The proposed tool will integrate the new codes within an existing commercial modeling tool called EM.Cube.
