Transmission, reflection, and radiation at junction planes of different open waveguides
Abstract
The quantitative analysis of the discontinuity in the electromagnetic properties, at the junction of different cylindrical open waveguides, is performed. The propagation of electromagnetic waves along a uniform (infinite) waveguide section and the interaction of waves at the junction plane are described. Integral representations are derived for the fields in a finite open waveguide section in terms of the transverse fields in the boundary planes, and for the fields in a semiinfinite section in terms of the transverse field in the terminal plane and the transverse incident field propagating towards the terminal plane. Systems of integral equations are established for the fields in the junction plane(s) of two (three) seriesconnected open waveguide sections. One of these systems of integral equations was selected and solved numerically. The transmission at the junction plane is computed for the seriesconnection of two waveguide sections.
