Nonlinear goubau line: Numerical study of te-polarized waves
2015 (English)In: PIERS 2015 Prague: Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium : Proceedings, Cambridge, MA: The Electromagnetics Academy , 2015, 1513-1517 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The propagation of monochromatic electromagnetic TE waves in the Goubau line (conducting cylinder covered by a concentric dielectric layer) filled with nonlinear inhomogeneous medium is considered. Two types of nonlinearity are studied. A physical problem is reduced to solving a nonlinear transmission eigenvalue problem for an ordinary differential equation. Eigenvalues of the problem correspond to propagation constants of the waveguide. A method is proposed for finding approximate eigenvalues of the nonlinear problem based on solving an auxiliary Cauchy problem (by the shooting method). The existence of eigenvalues that correspond to a new propagation regime is predicted. A comparison with the linear case is given.
