Abstract:

An attempt is made to clarify two common miscon ceptions about impedance transformation proper ties of tee-junctions 1 that any shunt tee will place a terminal impedance in shunt across the waveguide, or that any series-tee will place it in series, and 2 that the junction is such a complicated network that designs involving it should proceed completely empirically. Simple shunt or series equivalent circuits are derived in terms of the terminating impedance and one of the junction eigenvalues. Applications of the concepts developed in this paper include the synthesis of band-elimination filters, multi branch directional-couplers, waveguide rat races, as well as the frequency behavior of waveguide stubs.
