The effects of a lossy-ground plane on the radiation from a slot are analyzed by using a Green's function of an impedance surface. Numerical results of the radiation field, radiated power, and loss power are presented for various lossy ground planes. In particular, the radiation field and the radiated power from a short slot are given by simple closed expressions. The analytical model of a slot in an impedance surface is validated by radiation field measurements.
