Spectral-domain analysis of complex characteristic impedance of a leaky conductor-backed slotline

Abstract

We define an `equivalent complex characteristic impedance' for a conductor-backed slotline, that can be useful for circuit modeling purposes. Standard methods for computing the characteristic impedance of non-leaky transmission lines would not apply to a conductor-backed slotline due to its non-standard leakage behavior. Two alternate methods are proposed, that are compared with each other, as well as validated by comparing with rigorous 3D simulations of a practical circuit geometry.
