Abstract

The arrays of compound-slots (inclined and displaced from waveguide centre) are not so common in the literature and the existing systematic method of design does not take into account the presence of surrounding elements. For this kind of slots, the reasons why the Elliott's procedure cannot be applied are physically explained. A new method based on circuit theory and scattering matrices connection to include the effects of the external mutual coupling in compound slots arrays is presented in this paper. To certify the validity of the complete technique, the performance of various designed arrays are compared to the results given by full-wave commercial solvers.
