ABOUT THIS BOOK
Leaky waves can explain observed phenomena associated with both antennas and fundamental electromagnetic propagation with minimal numerical calculation. The subject is of current interest as various forms of leaky-wave antennas continue to be developed. Also, the underlying theory is proving useful to explain new phenomena such as giant transmission through arrays of sub-wavelength holes, a discovery that has generated considerable interest in the physics and engineering communities.
Leaky Waves in Electromagnetics is the first book of its kind to provide a unified treatment of the theory and the variety of applications of leaky waves. Topics covered include; the theoretical basis of leaky waves in uniform and periodic structures; and applications in radiation and antennas, scattering, metal and dielectric waveguides, planar structures and complex media.
