Abstract : The fields along a dielectric slab excited by a line source are found by considering the inversion integral of a Fourier transform directly rather than by resorting to the usual saddle point approximation techniques. The field at any point along the surface is expressed as a superposition of traveling waves plus a spacewave contribution, and conditions under which the field may be approximated by traveling wave components alone are discussed. Results of sample computations for both electric and magnetic current excitation are given. (Author)
