This paper presents a visualization of leaky waves excited by delta-gap sources on planar transmission lines, namely the 2nd surface and space leaky modes on the slotline, and the dominant and surface leaky modes on the conductor-backed slotline. The field is modeled by numerical calculation in the time domain. The simulations show the character of the leaky waves excited by delta-gap sources and are a useful tool for the investigation of leaky waves.
