Paper Abstract

A simple design is developed for corrugated waveguides for operation in the millimeterwave range of frequencies. The method determines both the corrugation period and the depth. The design is based on slab waveguide principles and uses solutions of the (scalar) boundary value problem of the slab waveguide to determine the corrugation depth and the corrugation spacing. The design tecimique compares well with other techniques developed for the purpose. Reflections at 90 at certain specific wavelengths are measured in the far field to obtain the radiation patterns. The patterns show good agreement with theoretical predictions confirming the effectiveness of design principles used. Measurements range in the frequencies from 90 GHz to 100 GHz. 1.
