REFLECTION AND TRANSMISSION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVE DUE TO A QUASI-FRACTIONAL-SPACE SLAB

By A. M. Attiya

Full Article PDF (254 KB)

Abstract:
A new method is introduced to construct a slab that has electric fields with propagation properties which are equivalent to a fractional-space wave equation in two-coordinate system. While its magnetic fields have propagation properties which are equivalent to the complementary fractional-space wave equation. Analytical forms for the reflection and transmission coefficients of this slab are derived. Results of these reflection and transmission coefficients show that such quasi-fractional-space slab has spatial and frequency selectivity properties.
