This paper presents equivalent transmission-line circuit models for an optically controlled microstrip slow-wave MIS structure which are valid over all regions of operation, namely, lossy dielectric, slow wave, and skin effect. The models take into account both capacitance and inductance due to the skin effect. The results for the phase constant (slowing factor) and attenuation by the equivalent-circuit models compare well with those obtained by an exact wave analysis.
