The scattered fields from a black half plane which absorbs all the incoming electromagnetic energy are evaluated by defining a new modified theory of physical optics surface current. This current eliminates the reflected fields, coming from the first stationary point of the reflection integral and only creates a reflected diffracted field. The incident scattered fields are found from the same integral, written for the perfectly conducting half plane. The scattered fields are evaluated by using the stationary phase method and edge point technique. The evaluated fields are plotted numerically.
