Reflection coefficient conductivity

Reflection coefficient conductivity

This figure shows the magnitude of the reflection coefficient, also known in the literature as the Fresnel coefficient, in terms of the angle of incidence. This representation corresponds to a wave propagating in free space an impinging onto a reflection surface characterized by its electrical properties (relative permittivity and conductivity).
