Analysis of the transition from rectangular waveguide to shielded dielectric image guide using the finite-difference time-domain method

The transition from a rectangular waveguide to a shielded dielectric image guide is analyzed using the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. This method has not been applied to three dimensional dielectric waveguide discontinuities before. The transition problem under consideration demonstrates the ability of the FDTD technique to model rather… CONTINUE READING
