The Ridge gap waveguide is a promising guiding structure, where there is no need to ensure the electrical contact and it has a possible operating bandwidth of 2:1 or even more. However, most of the presented passive devices based on this technology support a small portion of the possible bandwidth. This limitation is due to either the objective device or the excitation technique. In this work, a wide band power divider is introduced. The bandwidth of the presented power divider is from 10.3 GHz… CONTINUE READING
