Abstract

A modular technique originally proposed for waveguide junctions, the multimode equivalent network approach based on the integral equation formulation (IEMEN), is extended to the analysis of multilayer frequency selective surfaces integrated with waveguide array antennas. This technique represents each layer and transition between layers in terms of a generalized impedance or admittance matrix, obtained directly from the solution of an integral equation with reduced kernel. Thanks to the adopted formulation, the integral equation needs to be solved only in a limited set of frequency points. The IEMEN method is validated by comparison with results available in literature.
