Scattering at a four-port vertical microstrip–slotline transition

Vladimir G. Krizhanovski, Yu. V. Rassokhina


The rigorous analysis of three types of characteristic oscillations has been conducted in a stripline-slot resonator formed by the mutually-perpendicular strip and slot transmission lines (three-layer structure). Scattering matrix for a four-port vertical microstrip–slotline transition has been built on the basis of the resultant solution of boundary problems for the stripline–slot resonator.
