[DOI: 10.21982/M8QP4B ] Reflection by Two-Layer Composite
Ulaby, Fawwaz; Pierce, Leland; Nashashibi, Adib
This module computes the reflection properties of a two-layer composite with planar boundaries. Medium 1 is air with ϵ1 =1. The incidence angle in medium 1, and the frequency in GHz also are inputs. The reflection coefficient and reflectivity are plotted against the thickness of the top layer, for both h and v polarizations. inputs: complex dielectric constants for 2 layers, incidence angle, frequency outputs: plots: Reflection Coefficient Magnitude vs. layer thickness, Reflectivity vs. layer thickness
