Abstract

The diffraction of light by an aperture in an otherwise perfectly conducting plane screen of infinite extent is a phenomenon of fundamental interest in electromagnetics. Here, we consider classes of problems where the aperture domain is complex (possessing self-similar structure across a range of spatial scales) and modelled on infinite iterations of the fractal shapes devised by Cantor and Sierpinski. Rayleigh-Sommerfeld (RS) integrals are deployed to predict electric fields in the space behind the screen. This approach captures more fully the details of wave scattering, eliminating many of the approximations inherent with simpler analyses in Fraunhofer and Fresnel regimes. The solutions are essentially exact for Cantorset apertures, at least within Kirchhoff's treatment of the boundary conditions. Diffraction patterns from Cantor dust and Sierpinski triangle apertures are computed by transforming integrations over the domain into circulations around the constituent subdomain boundaries.
