Abstract:

Propagation of electromagnetic waves in a coaxial system is investigated. The configuration is that of an idealized dielectric coated antenna standing perpendicularly on a perfectly conducting plane being fed coaxially at its base. The method used involves integral transforms and leads to an infinite set of simultaneous linear equations relating an infinite number of unknowns. By proper choice of transverse dimensions only a finite number of equations and unknowns need be considered. It is therefore possible to obtain expressions for the amplitude of the surface wave and the admittance of the antenna.
