Multiparameter Control of Energy Characteristics of Waveguide-Cavity Resonator-Slot Radiators

Keywords: Radiation slot, Connecting slots, Rectangular waveguide, Cavity resonator, Electromagnetic waves


The problem of connecting three electrodynamic volumes with ideally conducting walls through electrically narrow rectilinear connecting slots and a radiating slot is solved by the generalized method of induced magnetomotive forces (MMF). The solution is obtained in an analytical form, taking into account the finite thickness of the walls of the connected volumes. The volumes are an infinite rectangular waveguide excited by a fundamental wave, a rectangular cavity resonator, and a half-space above an infinite plane. The energy characteristics of this system have been comprehensively studied depending on the geometric parameters of the constituent elements of the structure under consideration.
