Fringe Waves in an Impedance Half-Plane

By Husnu Deniz Basdemir
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 138, 571-584, 2013


The uniform expressions of scalar fringe waves which are based on the physical theory of diffraction (PTD) were obtained for the impedance half plane in terms of the Fresnel integrals. Asymptotic and uniform forms of the fringe fields were compared. The radiated fields of the fringe expressions were analyzed numerically.
