Abstract

A previously developed theory for the transmission of radiation in over moded hollow circular waveguides is extended to cover walls of arbitrary material. The extension relies on approximations to the Fresnel reflection coefficients near grazing angles of incidence for a material characterized by its complex refractive index.
