Electrically reconfigurable waveguide polarizer using liquid crystal technology for Ka-band applications

Abstract

A broadband liquid crystal based polarizer is presented in this paper, electrically changing the orientation of the fundamental TE01-mode of a square waveguide. The basic concept is similar to the twisted nematic cell in LC-display technology, however, adapted to the microwave regime as a waveguide component. This allows for continuous, electrical… (More)
