A Full-height Waveguide to Thin-film Microstrip Transition with Exceptional Rf Bandwidth and Coupling Efficiency

Abstract

We describe a waveguide to thin-film microstrip transition for highperformance submillimetre wave and teraherz applications. The proposed constant-radius probe couples thin-film microstrip line, to fullheight rectangular waveguide with better than 99% efficiency (VSWR ≤ 1.20) and 45% fractional bandwidth. Extensive HFSS simulations, backed by scale-model… (More)
