A short description of “Three Basic Propagation Mechanisms”

  • Basic propagation mechanisms
    – Reflection
    – Diffraction
    – Scattering
  • Reflection occurs when a propagating electromagnetic wave impinges upon an object which has very large dimensions when compared to the wavelength, e.g., buildings, walls.
  • Diffraction occurs when the radio path between the transmitter and receiver is obstructed by a surface that has sharp edges.
  • Scattering occurs when the medium through which the wave travels consists of objects with dimensions that are small compared to the wavelength.
