In high energy particle accelerators, a careful modeling of the electromagnetic interaction between the particle beam and the structure is essential to ensure the performance of the experiments. Particular interest arises in the presence of angular discontinuities of the structure, due to the asymmetrical behavior. In this case, semi-analytical models allow one to reduce the computational effort and to better understand the physics of the phenomena, with respect to purely numerical models. In the paper, a model for analyzing the electromagnetic interaction between a traveling charge particle and a perfectly conducting angular slot of a negligible thickness is discussed. The particle travels at a constant velocity along a straight line parallel to the axis of symmetry of the strip. The longitudinal and transverse coupling impedances are therefore evaluated for a wide range of parameters.
