This model shows how to simulate a TM mode microwave plasma by using the Doppler broadening parameter to smooth out the resonance zone, which occurs on the contour of critical electron density. A detailed explanation of the underlying physics of this model can be found in the blog entry "Application Note on Microwave Discharges".
A cascaded cavity filter provides much better bandpass filter performance compared to a single cavity. Out-of-band rejection improves dramatically using a cascaded design. This model uses three rectangular cavity filters coupled via slots. The calculated S-parameters show excellent out-of-band rejection.
A circular waveguide filter is designed using a 2D axisymmetric model. Six annular rings added to the waveguide form circular cavities connected in series, and each cavity cutoff frequency is close to the center frequency of the filter. The simulated S-parameters show a bandpass frequency response.
This is a benchmark model for the 2D axisymmetric formulation of the Electromagnetic Waves, Frequency Domain interface that is available with the RF Module. The problem is to find the resonant frequencies and fields inside an axisymmetric cavity with rectangular cross-section and perfectly conducting walls. Analytical expressions for the eigenvalues can be obtained using separation of variables. ...
