Radio Wave Measurement of Surface Roughness Through Electromagnetic Boundary Conditions
Inventors: Rosa Fitzgerald, Donald Barrick
Patent No. 6,862,922

Description:
This patent relates generally to the field of radio waves. More particularly, This patent relates to measuring radio waves in the context of surface roughness. Specifically, a preferred implementation of This patent relates to the remote monitoring or measuring of the roughness statistics of surfaces.

Abstract:
Systems and methods for radio wave measurement of surface roughness using electromagnetic boundary conditions. A representative method includes measuring electromagnetic wave fields by monitoring a plurality of signals at several frequencies from different directions; obtaining a plurality of electromagnetic boundary conditions from the plurality of signals; and determining a roughness energy spectrum by utilizing the plurality of electromagnetic boundary conditions.
