Abstract:

Electromagnetic penetration into a matched rectangular waveguide through a longitudinal slot in a conducting plane is considered. The problem is divided into two parts, one in half space and another inside the waveguide, by use of the equivalence principle. The resultant equations are the same as those described in a reference. The only difference is that the excitation vector is changed from an incident wave inside the waveguide to an incident plane wave in half space. The magnetic current over the slot is obtained from the solution of the matrix equations. The electromagnetic penetration into a matched rectangular waveguide and the electromagnetic reradiation into half space through a slot are computed from the equivalent magnetic current over the slot. The computed results show that a plane wave at normal incidence and a resonated slot near the side of the waveguide broad wall allow orders of magnitude greater power to penetrate into the waveguide than when the slot is not resonated. Keywords include Aperture admittance, Electromagnetic penetration, Equivalence principle, Generalized network parameters, Slot coupling, and Waveguide region.
