Abstract

A rigorous electromagnetic theory of the diffraction of radiation by a circular aperture in a thick screen is developed. In particular, the case of an incident plane wave is considered, and the effects of varying the thickness of the screen and of varying the wavelength, polarization, and angle of incidence of the incident wave on the reflection and transmission properties of the screen are investigated.
