Radiation from a cavity-backed circular aperture surrounded by concentric corrugations is studied. An electromagnetic boundary-value problem of the cavity-backed circular aperture surrounded by concentric corrugations is solved by using the Green's function, Hankel transform, and mode matching method. The radiated fields are computed in terms of corrugation geometry to illustrate radiation behaviors and measured to validate our computation. The effects of the corrugation geometries on the radiation are discussed.
