waveguide slot

waveguide slot

[′wāv‚gīd ‚slät]
(electromagnetism)
A slot in a waveguide wall, either for coupling with a coaxial cable or another waveguide, or to permit the insertion of a traveling probe for examination of standing waves.

In this article, the designs of two different types of compact planar magic tee junctions -- a planar magic tee junction (PMTJ1) using a collinear transverse waveguide slot coupler and a planar magic tee junction (PMTJ2) with a longitudinal/transverse slot coupled difference port -- have been accomplished based on MoM analysis and FEM-based CAD high frequency structure simulator software (HFSS).
For non-standard, similar or dissimilar waveguide slot couplers, the scattering parameters are modified to satisfy the power balance condition and a proper normalisation has been accomplished in terms of two waveguide dimensions and wave impedances to make the scattering matrix symmetrical.

Indeed the concept could be realized in waveguide to create a very low loss array, as shown in Figure 11, which shows series resonant waveguide slot arrays coupled by small holes to traveling waveguide feeds underneath.
8, was measured in two orthogonal orientations by rotating the sample by 90 [degrees] in the waveguide slot.
This difference can likely be attributed to the fact that the computations based on waveguide theory utilized values of power measured by a wattmeter having a manufacturer specified accuracy of 5% and that the waveguide theory computations did not take into account field disturbances caused by the probe launch and waveguide slots.
A half view of the feed waveguide slots is shown in Figure 4.
The waveguide slots are simple to machine and the ridges can be readily formed with a cosine taper or in steps.
