Abstract

A solution to the problem of determining the refractivity of n identical planar arrays from the properties of a single array is obtained by first extending Stokes’ equations to a form appropriate to a microscopic situation and then appropriately modifying Crook’s results for thin films. The results of such development are found to be in agreement with data taken at microwave frequencies.
