The Grounded Dielectric Slab as a Planar Leaky-Wave Applicator.

  • G. D'ambrosio (a1), G. Ferrara (a2) and R. Massa (a1)


It is well known that a leaky wave in free space may show a decay rate even less than zero, or, in other words, its amplitude may grow instead of decay [1,2,3,4]. The above behaviour is very attractive from the point of view of deep processing of materials [5,6]; thus we extended the leaky-wave antenna theory to the lossy (half) space case and analyzed in detail the channel guide applicator [7,8,9].
