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.
The feeding waveguide bends contribute to the overall mismatch, so trimming of either side walls or the partition between two waveguides and tuning screw adjusting, all affect the coupling opening resonant frequency, and may significantly compensate the input and output mismatch and result in the performance shown previously.

The junctions can simply be asymmetric junction offsets, if the attenuation band is of interest, or H-plane waveguide bends designed for the pass-band, if both the pass-band and attenuation bands are of interest.
