For a resistive half plane illuminated by an E-polarized plane wave at edge-on incidence, an exact expression is available for the total induced current as a function of the electrical distance kx from the edge. The expression is cast in a form that is amenable to computation for any complex ‘resistivity.’ The results of such a computation are presented, and it is shown how the data can be used to predict the backscattered field of a strip.
