The transverse magnetic (TM) radiation characteristics are investigated for a cylinder with N infinite axial slots of arbitrary opening size and location. The cylinder is a thin circular conductor and coated by an eccentric material. Fields are found by applying the boundary conditions to the cylindrical wave functions. The addition theorem of Bessel functions is used to obtain an infinite series solution in Fourier–Bessel series form. Results are computed by shrinking the generated infinite series to a finite number of terms and compared to other available data. Numerical results in graphical forms for different values are also developed and discussed for small eccentricities.
