reflecting antenna

[ri′flek·tiŋ an′ten·ə]
(electromagnetism)
An antenna used to achieve greater directivity or desired radiation patterns, in which a dipole, slot, or horn radiates toward a larger reflector which shapes the radiated wave to produce the desired pattern; the reflector may consist of one or two plane sheets, a parabolic or paraboloidal sheet, or a paraboloidal horn.
