Some new reflection principles for Maxwell's equations are first established, which are then applied to derive two novel identifiability results in inverse electromagnetic obstacle scattering problems with polyhedral scatterers.AMS subject classifications: 78A46, 35R30, 35P25, 35J05
Key words: Maxwell's equations, reflection principles, inverse electromagnetic scattering, identifiability and uniqueness.
