Modal transmission line theory of plane wave excited layered media with multiple conductive anisotropic sheets at the interfaces Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • © 2019 Elsevier Ltd A succinct and efficient transmission line formulation is presented for the analysis of plane wave excited planar multilayered uniaxial media comprising multiple conductive sheets at the interfaces. The conductive sheets may be anisotropic with a fully populated conductivity tensor, which results in the coupling the transverse-magnetic and transverse-electric waves. The transmission line formalism is thus extended to accommodate this hybrid mode of propagation. Three different algorithms for the solution of the transmission line network are developed and compared, including a numerically stable and efficient scattering matrix procedure. Numerical examples are included that validate the theoretical method.
