Abstract:

The patent describes an actuator for shifting the phase of an electromagnetic wave inside a waveguide. A worm gear connection controls the input to the actuator and drives a slide in a bi-directional movement. This slide is connected to a platform that controls the position of rods inside the waveguide. The position change of the rods in the waveguide causes a shift in the phase of the electromagnetic wave in the waveguide.
