A model for the reflection of terahertz signals from printed circuit board surfaces

  • Alexander Fricke (a1), Mounir Achir (a2), Philippe Le Bars (a2) and Thomas Kürner (a1)

Abstract

Based on vector network analyzer Measurements, a model for the specular reflection behavior of printed circuit boards in the Terahertz range has been derived. It has been calibrated to suit the behavior of the measurements using a simulated annealing algorithm. The model has been tailored for integration to ray-tracing-based propagation modeling.
