Abstract : The class of waves known as leaky waves plays an important role in a variety of electromagnetic phenomena in open regions, and a recognition of this role permits new insight into many of these phenomena. The properties of leaky waves are discussed, and their usefulness is illustrated in connection with so-called leaky wave antennas, radiation from source-excited plasma layers, radiation from periodically-modulated surfaces, log-periodic antennas, Wood's anomalies on periodic structures, and Cerenkov and SmithPurcell radiation.
