Dispersion characteristics of a metamaterial-based parallel plate ridge waveguides
Paper i proceeding, 2009
This paper presents an approximate analytical analysis of the quasi-TEM dominant mode in a parallel plate metamaterial-based waveguide. This waveguide is constituted by a fakir's bed plate interrupted by a metal strip, and covered by a metallic plate. This structure is simple to manufacture, especially at millimetre and sub-millimetre wave frequencies.
