Phase-retardation effects at radio frequencies in flat-plate conductors
Bulte DP., Forbes LK., Crozier S.
<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>A system of new integral equations is presented. They are derived from Maxwell's equations and describe radio-frequency (RF) current densities on a two-dimensional flat plate. The equations are generalisations of Pocklington's integral equation showing phase-retardation in two dimensions. These singular equations are solved, numerically, for the case of one-dimensional geometry. The solutions are shown to display effects which correspond to damped resonance when the wavelength of the current matches aspects of the geometry of the conductor.</jats:p>
