Abstract : Leaky waves in multiply layered plasma media are analyzed by considering the radiation pattern of a grounded magnetic line source in the presence of isotropic planar layers. It is shown that the propagation constants of the waves derive from the eigenvalues of surface waves on related, but simpler, structures and that radiated beams of great magnitude can be obtained. Methods of predicting the beam characteristics are presented and verified with computed patterns. (Author)
