Analysis of an Inclined Semi-Circular Slot in the Narrow Wall of a Rectangular Waveguide

Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 90, 323-339, 2009
Abstract
An inclined semi-circular slot cut in the narrow wall of a rectangular waveguide has been analyzed. By enforcing the boundary condition of continuity of the tangential magnetic field at the slot aperture, an integral equation with the aperture electric field as the unknown has been obtained and solved by the method of moments (MoM). The equivalent slot admittance is then determined. Different slot parameters, such as scattering coefficients, normalized resonant conductance, resonant length versus tilt angle, and radiation patterns, have been studied. The results obtained by the MoM have been verified by comparing them against those results obtained with HFSS.
