Homework Help: 2d scattered field

  1. Dec 22, 2005 #1
    hey, does anyone know an application in which an electric field is scattered by a conductor (2D). A parabolic antenna is a good example, but i need another one.

    thanks, levi

    How about the reflection of radio waves off the ionosphere?

    The ionosphere is a conductor.
