Abstract. The dispersion equations for two types of
orthogonally polarized in transverse direction modes propagating in a plane
metal-dielectric waveguide with two wave-guiding layers of unequal thick have
been calculated. The effect of an anomalous propagation cutoff regarding the
relative slowdown on zero frequency of the fundamental mode polarized
orthogonally to the metal screens has been revealed. A possibility of
realization of the microwave wideband high-power dividers on the basis of the
waveguide under consideration has been shown.
Keywords: dispersion, metal-dielectric waveguide,
relative slowdown, low-frequency propagation cutoff, high-power microwave divider.
