Resistor Reflectance

Finally, for a resistor of $ R$ Ohms, we get

$\displaystyle \hat{\rho}_R(s) = \frac{R-R_0}{R+R_0} = \frac{1 - R_0/R }{ 1 + R_0/R } \protect$ (F.7)

Note that both the capacitor and inductor reflectances are stable allpass filters, as they must be. Also, the resistor reflectance is always less than 1, no matter what waveguide impedance $ R_0>0$ we choose.
