Abstract:

The self and mutual admittance of wave guide backed slots radiating into a plasma or dielectric layer has been formulated in a laterally unbounded geometry. The admittance expression involves integrals that may be approximated by summations for numerical calculations. For a constant mesh size approximation to the integrals the summations are the same as obtained in earlier work, where the plasma layers are considered to be within a wide wave guide. The accuracy of the solution is improved by decreasing the mesh size used for the numerical integration, which is equivalent to increasing the size of the large guide in the wave guide model. Mutual admittance calculations between two-parallel slots show that the presence of a plasma layer decreases the mutual admittance relative to its free space value. Author
