Abstract:

In this contribution we propose the use of general bianisotropic inhomogeneous materials for both radiating i.e. microstrip antennas and transmissive i.e waveguides, transmission lines, filters, etc. components in the microwave and millimetre wave frequency ranges. The analysis of such components is essentially developed via a rigorous full-wave approach in the spectral or in the spatial domain depending on the complexity of the boundary value problem to be solved and on the numerical technique to be used. For the transmissive components a fundamental mode approximate analysis is also employed in order to obtain very fast design formulas.
