Abstract

An analytical approximate solution of the electromagnetic field on a subwavelength elliptical hole in a thin perfectly conducting screen is presented. Illumination is a linear polarized, normally incident plane wave. A polynomial development method is used and allows one to obtain an easy-to-use analytical solution of the fields, which can be used to build analytical expressions of aperture fields for apertures in anisotropic structures.
