Abstract

Nondestructive testing of a small defect (a dust particle or air void) in a strongly confined planar waveguide is considered. Explicit formulas are given for a quick identification of the small defect by use of the distorted fields measured at the two end faces of the planar waveguide for two frequencies. The explicit identification scheme is verified numerically.
