Abstract

Explicit expressions are derived for the fields radiated by layered structures of linearly and sinusoidally varying thickness. Both plane-wave and concentrated-source excitations are considered. The solutions are based on a full-wave analysis which uses the exact boundary conditions. It is shown that the solutions are, in general, consistent with the reciprocity relationships.
