Abstract

In this STTR project, we propose a novel computational technology for analyzing millimeter and submillimeter wave scattering from complex and electromagnetically extended objects and environments. The crux of our formalism lies in a technique for rapidly calculating and coherently adding fields produced by different scatterer constituents, ranging from conducting flat and rough surfaces to penetrable sheets and volumes. The proposed tool will integrate state-of-the-art fast full-wave solvers developed by EMAG and the University of Michigan within the existing EM.CUBE software frameowrk.
