An analysis is made of an aperture system loaded with an inhomogeneous dielectric. The system consists of two parts. The first part is a section of rectangular waveguide extending from negative infinity along the z-axis to a distance z0 back from an infinite, perfectly conducting ground plane, whose normal is also in the z direction. This section of waveguide is filled with a homogeneous dielectric. The second part is a section of rectangular waveguide of the same dimensions extending from z0 to an aperture in the ground plane. This section of waveguide is filled with an inhomogeneous dielectric. The dielectric is characterized by a permeability and permittivity that varies exponentially with distance from the aperture. At first the waveguide containing the inhomogeneous dielectric was considered to extend to negative infinity. A set of modes was found to satisfy Maxwells equations and the required aperture symmetries when the field incident at the aperture was a conventional TE10 mode. The fields on the free-space side of the aperture were written in integral form using the free-space Greens Function as a kernel and the aperture electric field as its source. Author
