Recently, there has been an increased interest in exploring periodic structures having higher symmetry properties, primarily based on metallic realization. The design of dielectric glide-symmetric structures has many challenges, and this paper presents a systematic analysis approach based on Floquet mode decomposition and mode matching technique. The presented procedure connects the analysis of standard periodic structures and glide-symmetric realizations, thus giving insight into the wave

The obtained results were verified in comparison with results from known references and using a commercial solver, proving that the proposed analysis technique is inherently accurate, and the degree of accuracy depends only on the number of modes used. The proposed analysis approach represents the first step in the design process of dielectric periodic structures with glide symmetry.
