Abstract

This paper deals with a broadband TE10 to TE20 mode transformer in a WR90 rectangular waveguide with more than 35 dB suppression of the fundamental mode and only 0.4 dB of maximum transformation loss. Two fin lines are employed with appropriate configuration in order to obtain a broadband mode transformation.
