Abstract

The effects of the presence of metal irises on guided-mode propagation through a symmetrical three-layer slab waveguide are examined by using the integral equation method. The aperture electric field distribution is expressed in terms of a finite series of Chebyshev polynomials. The modal reflection and transmission coefficients, the near-field structure, and the far-field radiation pattern are calculated, while numerical results are presented for several iris apertures.
