Anisotropic-dielectric-loaded corrugated guide

K. C.C.O. Senhorini, J. R. Descardeci, J. R. Bergmann


In this paper, the boundary condition characteristic equation of the anisotropic-dielectric-loaded corrugated guide are developed. Dispersion curves of hybrid modes generated by the characteristic equation are presented and discussed. This paper also presents a technique to reduce the relative permittivity and create uniaxial anisotropy from isotropic homogeneous dielectric.
