Field Distributions of High Frequency Waveguide Discontinuities

All field distributions were simulated with the MAFIA software package (version 3.20) which is a multi-purpose ECAD system. MAIFA is based on the Finite Integration Technique (FIT). This technique is the theoretical basis for solving the Maxwell's equations in integral form. The analytical equations are discretized onto two grids which are orthogonal to each other. This yields a set of matirx equations, each of which is the discrete analogue to one of the original Maxwell equations.
