Abstract

A new method is introduced to analyze lossy Inhomogeneous Planar Layers (IPLs) for both TE and TM polarizations in this paper. The IPLs are subdivided into several thin linear layers instead of uniform ones. The chain parameter matrix of linear layers is obtained by expressing the electric and magnetic fields in power series expansion. This method is applicable to all arbitrary lossy IPLs. The accuracy of the proposed method is verified using a comprehensive example.
