Geometry of the infinite plane waveguide phased array antenna with dielectric coating sheets

Electrodynamic calculation of infinite plane waveguide phased array antenna with external dielectric sheets

S. V. Marchenko, V. M. Morozov


Using the penetrating area technique we have considered the solution of three-dimensional diffraction problem for an infinite plane phased array antenna consisting of rectangular waveguides with location in the form of a triangular mesh in the presence of plane-layered dielectric filling. The article presents the results, which confirm the correctness of the developed algorithm for electrodynamic calculation.
