Scattering from random rough surface has been of interest for decades. Several
methods were proposed to solve this problem, and Kirchho approximation (KA)
and small perturbation method (SMP) are among the most popular. Both methods
provide accurate results on rst order scattering, and the range of validity is limited
and cross-polarization scattering coecient is zero for these two methods unless these
two methods are carried out for higher orders. Furthermore, it is complicated for
higher order formulation and multiple scattering and shadowing are neglected in these
Extension of these two methods has been made in order to x these problems.
However, it is usually complicated and problem specic. While small slope approximation
is one of the most widely used methods to bridge KA and SMP, it is not easy
to implement in a general form. Two scale model can be employed to solve scattering
problems for a tilted perturbation plane, the range of validity is limited.
A new model is proposed in this thesis to deal with cross-polarization scattering
phenomenon on perfect electric conducting random surfaces. Integral equation
is adopted in this model. While integral equation method is often combined with
numerical method to solve the scattering coecient, the proposed model solves the
integral equation iteratively by analytic approximation. We utilize some approximations
on the randomness of the surface, and obtain an explicit expression. It is shown
that this expression achieves agreement with SMP method in second order.
