Analysis of excitations for a groove guide resonator at 10 GHz by means of the FDTD method
Various excitations of a new groove guide resonator working in the X-band (8 GHz - 12 GHz) are investigated by means of numerical simulations. For the numerical simulations the Finite-Difference Time-Domain method is used. The groove guide resonator, modelled both with and without excitation structures, is discretised in space. The results in the time domain are then transformed into the frequency domain in order to obtain the resonance frequency spectrum. Comparison between simulations with and without excitations shows the effect of the excitations on the resonance frequency spectrum. The results are compared with those of previous analytical methods.
