Time-Domain Pulse Propagation on a Microstrip Transmission Line Excited by a Gap Voltage Source
(Citations: 2)
Time-domain pulse propagation on microstrip transmission lines excited by a finite-gap voltage source is investigated with special attention given to the dispersive effects associated with the individual components of the transmission-line current. High-frequency effects due to leaky modes are of particular interest. The results show that dispersion can be quite different and more severe than that predicted by the bound mode alone
