ANALYSIS OF THE FIELDS IN THREE DIMENSIONAL CASSEGRAIN SYSTEM

By C. A. Ghaffar, Q. A. Naqvi, and K. Hongo

Full Article PDF (191 KB)

Abstract:
High frequency field expressions are derived around feed point of a three dimensional Cassegrain system using the Maslov's method. Maslov's method is a systematic procedure for predicting the field in the caustic region. It combines the simplicity of ray theory and generality of the transform method. Numerical computations are made for the analysis of field pattern around the caustic of a Cassegrain system.
