Electrodynamic characteristics of the nonresonant system of transverse slots in the wide wall of a rectangular waveguide

S. L. Berdnik, Victor A. Katrich, V. I. Kiiko, M. V. Nesterenko


The method of induced magnetomotive forces is applied to the problem of electromagnetic wave radiation by a system of transverse slots located in the wide wall of finite thickness of a rectangular waveguide. The paper includes calculation of space-energy characteristics of linear multislot nonresonant antenna arrays of the leaky wave. Comparison of the numerical results, obtained by Galyorkin’s method, with the experimental data is performed.
