Transient electromagnetic fields in a lossy dielectric slab

  • F. Bardati


The problem of the determination of transient fields in a lossy dielectric slab, irradiated by an electromagnetic plane wave, is solved by analytical evaluation of the inverse Laplace transform of the step response. The response to a modulated step is also considered. Numerical examples are given having in mind applications to the microwave heating of biological bodies.
