Abstract

The analytical expressions for the electromagnetic field generated by a horizontal electric dipole over a dielectric coated perfect conductor are derived by transformation of integral path. From the expressions, it can be clearly observed that the excited field consists of the direct wave, reflected wave, trapped surface wave and lateral wave. The propagation wave number of trapped surface wave, which depends on electric parameters and thickness of the dielectric layer, is between the wave number k0 and k1.
