Waves in active and passive periodic structures: A review

  • Ch. Elachi
  • Published 1976 in Proceedings of the IEEE


The theory and recent applications of waves in periodic structures are reviewed. Both the Floquet and coupled waves approach are analyzed in some detail. The theoretical part of the paper includes wave propagation in unbounded and bounded active or passive periodic media, wave scatterring from periodic boundaries, source radiation (dipole, Cerenkov… (More)
