The propagation of H-waves on an anisotropic dielectric slab, with a view toward providing information of possible interest for the design of surface-wave antennas, was investigated. The calculations were carried out on an IBM 7090 data processing system and the results are in the form of tables and plots of propagating wavelength versus frequency, with the longitudi nal and transverse dielectric constants of the slab as parameters. The results show a trans verse dielectric constant only slightly larger than unity, together with a large longitudinal dielectric constant, yield a propagation wave length only slightly less than that in free space over a wide frequency range. Such a structure may be of use in the design of sur face-wave antennas. Author
