Influence of switching-waveform characteristics on the performance of a single-layer-phase switched screen \ud

Conventional microwave-absorbing materials rely on the absorption and conversion into heat, of the electromagnetic energy incident upon them. In an alternative approach, the phase-switched screen (PSS) applies phase modulation to the reflected signal so that the energy is redistributed into sidebands with, ideally, none remaining at the original incident carrier frequency f/sub c/. Hence, by adjusting the frequency and shape of the waveform that controls the PSS reflection coefficient, these sidebands may be positioned outside the pass-band of a receiver tuned to f/sub c/. An investigation has been carried out to determine how the choice of control waveform and switching frequency influence the PSS performance
