Abstract:
Time harmonic electric and magnetic fields inside a parallel plate DB boundary waveguide are derived and fractional curl operator is utilized to study the fractional parallel plate DB waveguides. The DB boundary conditions are incorporated by assuming the behavior of boundary as perfect electric conductor (PEC) for transverse electric mode and perfect magnetic conductor (PMC) for transverse magnetic mode. For this purpose a general wave propagating inside the parallel plate wave waveguide is assumed and decomposed into TE and TM modes. Behavior of the fields and transverse impedances of the walls of guide are studied with respect to the fractional parameter describing the order of the fractional curl operator. The results are compared with the corresponding results for fractional waveguides with PEC walls.
