coefficient of reflection

Definitions

Electronics

  • The ratio of the amplitude of a wave reflected from a surface, to the amplitude of the same wave incident upon the surface.
  • The ratio of the current delivered to a load whose impedance is not matched to the source, to the current that would be delivered to the same load if its impedance were fully matched.
