waveguide bend

waveguide bend

[′wāv‚gīd ¦bend]
(electromagnetism)
A section of waveguide in which the direction of the longitudinal axis is changed; anE-plane bend in a rectangular waveguide is bent along the narrow dimension, while anH-plane bend is bent along the wide dimension. Also known as waveguide elbow.

Most of the power loss happens during the waveguide bends, hence wide-angle branching waveguide needs to be designed as small as possible to avoid power loss.
Power loss in the design is due to waveguide bends.
