Novel X-Band Waveguide Dual Circular Polarizer

By Chen Xu, Sami Tantawi, and Juwen Wang
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 64, 79-87, 2016


Novel types of dual circular polarizer are developed to convert TE10 mode into two different polarizated TE11 modes in a circular waveguide. These designs have MHz bandwidth and high power transmission capability. They can be used for broadcasting and receiving circular polarized signals.
