FDTD Modeling of Arbitrary Linear Lumped Networks Using Piecewise Linear Recursive Convolution Technique
Zhi-Hui Chen Qing-Xin Chu
Based on the piecewise linear recursive convolution (PLRC) technique, FDTD modeling of Arbitrary linear lumped networks is studied in this paper, including one-port networks and two-port networks. Their general FDTD iterative formulations are obtained. Firstly, the admittance parameters in Laplace domain of lumped network are written as a summation form of several rational fractions; then the time domain admittance parameters can be obtained by means of inverse Fourier transform technique. Finally the time domain results are directly incorporated into the Maxwell- Ampere's difference equation using the PLRC technique. It is worth pointing out that this approach preserves the second-order accuracy and the explicit nature of the conventional FDTD method. The proposed technique can be extended to model arbitrary linear multiport lumped networks. To show the validity of the proposed algorithm, we analyze two microstrip circuits including lumped networks. The results are compared with those obtained from the Z-transform technique and the good agreement is achieved.

Study of an Electrically Anisotropic Cylinder Excited Magnetically by a Straight Strip Line
Constantinos Valagiannopoulos
An infinite homogeneous circular cylinder with full permittivity tensor is excited by a straight strip flowed by arbitrary axial magnetic current. A nontrivial differential equation is derived for the single axial magnetic component which is assigned a plane wave representation. The boundary conditions lead to an integral equation with nonsingular kernel which is solved by supposing a Dirac comb representation for the unknown function. The resultant Green's function multiplied by the current distribution is integrated numerically over the source to give the total field. Various numerical examples are presented and discussed.

An Effective Technique for Reducing the Truncation Error in the Near-Field-Far-Field Transformation with Plane-Polar Scanning
Francesco D'Agostino Flaminio Ferrara Claudio Gennarelli Rocco Guerriero Giovanni Riccio
An effective approach is proposed in this paper for estimating the near-field data external to the measurement region in the plane-polar scanning. It relies on the nonredundant sampling representations of the electromagnetic field and makes use of the singular value decomposition method for the extrapolation of the outside samples. It is so possible to reduce in a significant way the error due to the truncation of the measurement zone thus increasing the farfield angular region of good reconstruction. The comparison of such an approach, based on the optimal sampling interpolation expansions, with an existing procedure using the cardinal series has highlighted that the proposed technique works better. Some numerical tests are reported for demonstrating its effectiveness.

Computations of Electromagnetic Fields Radiated from Complex Lightning Channels
Ting-Xin Song Yao-He Liu Jian-Min Xiong
In this paper, three methods for calculating electromagnetic fields radiated from complex lightning channels are discussed, which includes channel obliqueness, branches and tortuosity. By rotating and moving the coordinate system of the vertical channel, differential expressions of electromagnetic fields from the irregular channel can be derived from the conclusions of the straight and vertical channel. Through analyzing calculation results of two examples reveals that channel tortuosity and branch is to introduce the higher frequency content above 100 kHz into lightning electromagnetic fields.

Electromagnetic Field from a Horizontal Electric Dipole on the Surface of a High Lossy Dielectric Coated with a Uniaxial Layer
Jian Mei Kai Li
In this paper, the explicit formulas are derived for the six components of the electromagnetic field in air excited by a horizontal electric dipole over a planar high lossy dielectric coated with an anisotropic uniaxial layer. Similar to the case of the three-layered region consisting of air, a uniaxial layer,and a perfect conductor, the total field consists of the direct field,the ideal reflected field or the field of an ideal image, the lateral-wave field,and the trappedsurface- wave field. It should be pointed out that the trapped surface wave can be separated into the trapped wave of electric type and magnetic type. The wave numbers in the ρ̂ direction of electric-type trapped surface wave, which are between k0 and kL, are different from those of the magnetic-type trapped surface wave, which are between k0 and kL . When the thickness l of the uniaxial layer satisfies nπ < kT/kL (k2L - k20)1/2 · l < (n + 1)π, there are n + 1 modes of the electric-type trapped surface waves. When the thickness l satisfies (n − 1/2)π < (k2T −k20)1/2 · l < (n + 1/2)π, there are n modes of magnetictype trapped waves.

Near-Field to Far-Field Transformation with Planar Spiral Scanning
Sandra Costanzo Giuseppe Di Massa
A transformation procedure directly computing the antenna far-field pattern from near-field samples acquired on a planar spiral is proposed in this paper. The convolution property of the radiation integral is exploited to efficiently perform the evaluation by taking advantages of the Fast Fourier Transform, without the need of any intermediate interpolation process. Validations on circular arrays of elementary dipoles are presented to show the effectiveness of the method.

Microwave Surface Impedance of a Nearly Ferroelectric Superconductor
Chien-Jang Wu Chao-Ming Fu Tzong-Jer Yang
The intrinsic microwave surface impedance for a nearly ferroelectric superconducting film of finite thickness in the dielectriclike response is theoretically investigated. It is based on the electrodynamics of a nearly ferroelectric superconductor that incorporates the Maxwell's equations, the lattice equations for an ionic lattice, and the superconducting London equation as well. It is found that the surface resistance will be enhanced with decreasing the film thickness when the thickness is less than the London penetration depth. However it will begin to resonate as a function of film thickness at the thickness being more than one London penetration depth. The anomalous resonance peaks occur when the thickness equals the even multiple of the London penetration depth. In the frequency-dependent surface resistance, the number of the resonance peaks is strongly dependent on the film thickness, increasing with increasing the thickness. In addition, these peaks are not regularly spaced at a fixed interval. Discussion on this anomaly in the surface resistance will be given.

Modal Dispersion Characteristics of a Single Mode Dielectric Optical Waveguide with a Guiding Region Cross-Section Bounded by Two Involuted Spirals
Praveen Pandey Akta Mishra Sant Ojha
With the use of scalar field approximation we make an analytical study of a dielectric waveguide whose core cross-section is bounded by two spirals of the form 1/r = ξθ. This waveguide is similar to that of a distorted slab waveguide in which both a curvature and a flare are present. We derived the modal characteristic equation by analytical analysis under the weak guidance approximation. We find the modal dispersion curve, which support only single mode propagation and the same compared with the same kind of waveguide with metal claddings.
