An optical waveguide switch
employing silicon photonics uses well-established silicon fabrication technology, which allows for inexpensive mass production.
The ripples in the noncorrected case are due to the interferences between the reflections at the waveguide switch
and the short.
The PIN-diode waveguide switches
consist of four models with fully integrated WR10 and WR12 waveguide ports covering E-band (60- to 90-GHz) and W-band (75- to 110-GHz) frequencies.
Addressing millimeter-wave applications, Pasternack has launched a line of E and W-band PIN-diode waveguide switches
The waveguide switches
provide this same level of configurability and redundancy.
Note the waveguide switches
and rigid waveguide transmission lines.
