Reflection coefficient

   

    Lorenzo Rubio Arjona

This figure shows the magnitude of the reflection coefficient, also known in the literature as the Fresnel coefficient, in terms of the angle of incidence. This representation corresponds to a wave propagating in free space an impinging onto a reflection surface characterized by its electrical properties (relative permittivity and conductivity).
The range of the parameters used in the derivation of the reflection coefficient are the following:

Frequency: From 10 MHz to 10 GHz
Relative permitivity: From 1 to 10
Conductivity: From 0 S/m to 10 S/m

GOAL:
This figure shows the magnitude of the reflection coefficient (Fresnel coefficient) in terms of the angle of incidence.

INTRODUCTION:
This representation corresponds to a wave propagating in free space an impinging onto a reflection surface characterized by its electrical properties (relative permittivity and conductivity) for a given frequency. The figure shows that the reflection coefficient for both polarizations, i.e., vertical (hard) and horizontal (soft), approaches to 1 when the angle of incidence goes closer to 90ยบ (grazing incidence).

INSTRUCTIONS:
Introduce the electrical properties of the reflection surface (relative permittivity and conductivity) and the frequency to show both the vertical and horizontal reflection coefficients.
