In the spectral domain method of moments (MoM) solution of printed structures on planar grounded dielectric slabs, the infinite double integrals which appear in the asymptotic parts of the MoM impedance matrix and the MoM excitation vector elements, have been previously transformed to one-dimensional finite integrals, which have been numerically computed using the highly specialized "International Mathematics and Statistics Library" subroutines. In this paper, these one-dimensional integrals are evaluated in closed-form, resulting in an improved efficiency and accuracy for the rigorous investigation of printed antennas and complex millimeter and microwave integrated circuits. Numerical results in the form of mutual impedance between two expansion functions and input impedance of various microstrip antennas are presented to assess the accuracy of these closed-form expressions.
