The plane wave diffraction by a terminated semi infinite parallel-plate waveguide with two-layer material loading and impedance boundaries is rigorously analyzed for E polarization using the Wiener-Hopf technique. Introducing the Fourier transform for the scattered field and applying boundary conditions in the transform domain, the problem is formulated in terms of the simultaneous Wiener-Hopf equations, which are solved via the factorization and decomposition procedure. The scattered field is evaluated by taking the inverse Fourier transform and applying the saddle point method. The numerical examples of the radar cross section (RCS) are represented for various physical parameters and backscattering characteristics, of considered geometry for open ended cavity and discussed in detail.
