An X-band H-plane groove gap waveguide magic-T is presented as a combination of an H-plane and an E-plane T-junction. Two architectures can be derived by orientating the sum and difference ports to the same or opposite directions, respectively. Slot coupling allows the reduction of the device dimensions along the E-plane, and such a low profile can be attractive in all groove gap waveguide applications where compactness is required. A proof-of-concept prototype is fabricated with standard low-cost CNC milling machine manufacturing techniques. Good agreement between simulations and measurements is observed.

Abstract

An X-band H-plane groove gap waveguide magic-T is presented as a combination of an H-plane and an E-plane T-junction. Two architectures can be derived by orientating the sum and difference ports to the same or opposite directions, respectively. Slot coupling allows the reduction of the device dimensions along the E-plane, and such a low profile can be attractive in all groove gap waveguide applications where compactness is required. A proof-of-concept prototype is fabricated with standard low-cost CNC milling machine manufacturing techniques. Good agreement between simulations and measurements is observed.
