Abstract

It is shown that a transform-pair relationship exists between incident and scattered fields from an infinite, perfectly conducting reflector of arbitrary shape, when the physical optics approximation is applied. As an example of potential applications, this relationship is used to synthesize a reflector feed pattern required to produce a desired far-field pattern from a given paraboloidal reflector.
