Radiation fields of the spherical slot antenna in a material medium





electromagnetic fields, narrow slot, perfectly conducting sphere, rectangular waveguide


The problem of electromagnetic waves radiation into a space outside a perfectly conducting sphere through a narrow slot, cut in an end-wall of a semi-infinite rectangular waveguide, excited by a fundamental wave of H10 type is solved using a rigorous self-consistent formulation. The starting point for the analysis is the one-dimensional integral equation for the equivalent magnetic current in the slot, obtained by using the effective thickness of the slot. The asymptotic solution of the equation was found by the generalized method of induced magnetomotive forces (MMF). The expressions for electromagnetic field components of the spherical slot antenna in a material medium were derived.
