Natural-Mode Representation for the Field Reflected by an Inhomogeneous Conductor-Backed Material Layer - TE Case
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 63, 1-20, 2006
Abstract
The transient plane-wave field reflected by a conductorbacked, inhomogeneous, planar material layer is considered. The reflected field is written as a natural-mode expansion, and the natural resonance frequencies of the slab are found by solving a homogeneous integral equation for the field within the slab. Several examples are considered, and the natural mode series is verified by comparison to the inverse fast-Fourier transform of the frequency-domain reflected field.
