Short summary
This article investigates the properties of dielectric corner reflectors for use in a number of millimeter wave applications, such as road safety for autonomous driving. Material characterizations of different typical plastics using transmission measurements are presented, as well as an analysis of their respective radar cross section (RCS) when used as corner reflectors. They exhibit similar behavior as conventional metallic reflectors, while intrinsic dielectric losses reduce the overall RCS.
