Abstract:
The Method of Moments (MoM) has been widely used for the full-wave electromagnetic analysis of planar multilayered media. However, the MoM is a computationally intensive process and requires considerable computer resources to perform the analysis. Thus, several efficient numerical techniques both in the spectral domain and spatial domain are investigated and further developed in this research. Two fitting procedures, i.e., the Rational Function Fitting Method (RFFM) and the Discrete Complex Image Method (DCIM), are investigated and developed in order to obtain closed-form spatial-domain Green's functions (GFs). Because the subtraction of the surface-wave pole contribution plays an important role for the accurate estimation of the spatial-domain GFs via DCIM, an efficient and accurate surface-wave pole location method is developed to find all the surface-wave poles for general multilayered media. The RFFM can be realized through either the Total Least Square Algorithm (TLSA) or the Vector Fitting (VECTFIT) method. Both the RFFM using VECTFIT and DCIM are detailed in step by step procedures. An efficient and low cost algorithm combining the advantages of DCIM and TLSA is also developed to evaluate the closed-form Green's functions for general multilayered media. A prototype version of the Full-Wave Layered-Interconnect Simulator (UA-FWLIS) was developed by analytically calculating the MoM reaction elements via Cauchy's residue theorem and the Complementary Incomplete Lipschitz-Hankel Integrals in stripline structures. After applying RFFM via VECTFIT to the G-functions, which are directly related to the spectral-domain GFs for microstrip structures, a procedure that is similar to the one used in the previously developed UA-FWLIS for stripline structures can be applied to calculate the MoM reaction elements analytically when the two reaction cells are close (< 0.1λ₀) in the spectral domain via the Electrical Field Integral Equation (EFIE). When the two reaction cells are far enough away (> 0.10.1λ₀), a simple expression for the reaction element can be obtained in the spatial domain via the Mixed Potential Integral Equation (MPIE) by a summation of a few complex image terms for the evaluation of the vector and scalar GFs. An efficient hybrid spectral-spatial method is thus developed to extend UA-FWLIS to microstrip structures. The method is validated by several numerical examples.
