Their topics include the analysis of nonhomogeneous helical systems using electrodynamical methods, calculating characteristic impedance of multiconductor lines, investigating slow-wave systems with versatile electromagnetic simulation and design tools, applying slow-wave structures to deflect electron beams, and the computer-aided design of electrodynamical delay lines.
There were 3 limitations in applying this analytical solution: (i) the length of the pin was finite so that the end effect could not be ignored; (ii) they used an inequality to estimate the characteristic impedance of the multi-pin probe, and thus the analytical solution was still a rough approximation; (iii) the analytical solution based on transmission line was not able to take the soil heterogeneity within the volume of interest into account.
From a purely theoretical point of view, transmission line theory teaches that the characteristic impedance of a cable should be approximately equal to the average (or geometric mean) impedance of the load.
