Abstract:

A very broadband coaxial-to-ridge waveguide transition has been designed for use in antennas and ridge waveguide components. A description of the transition design procedures and performance data are presented. The transition was initially designed to operate in the frequency range from 0.8 to 2.3 Gc with a voltage standing wave ratio VSWR of less than 1.8. The results indicate that the design performs better than the specified requirements. When used as a feed for an electromagnetic horn, the VSWR was less than 1.7 from 0.85 to 2.7 Gc and less than 2.0 in the frequency ranges of 0.6 to 3.1 Gc and 4.1 to 4.9 Gc. Author
