Abstract

In this paper, the region of interest consists of a perfect conductor, coated with the two layer dielectrics under the air. The completed analytical formulas have been derived for the electromagnetic field due to a vertical electric dipole in the four-layered region when both the source point and observation point are located in the upper dielectric layer. Similar to the three-layered case, the trapped surface wave, which is contributed by the sums of residues of the poles, can also be excited efficiently by a vertical electric dipole in the four-layered region. The lateral wave is determined by the integrations along the branch cuts.
