In this chapter we will discuss theoretical models for characterising slots in waveguides. in Chapter 4 we looked at basic theories for slot apertures and found expressions for the conductance of longitudinal slots in rectangular waveguides. We will now look at ways of finding the slot susceptance, the effect of slot offset on resonance conditions, influence of wall thickness, waveguide dimensions, etc. We will demonstrate how electromagnetic models can tell us about slot behaviour in greater detail. The longitudinal slot and the transverse slot in the broad wall of a rectangular waveguide will be treated in. particular. We will thus establish a basis for an efficient design process of high-performance slotted waveguide arrays.
