Characteristics of an Offset Longitudinal / Transverse Slot Coupled Crossed Waveguide Junction Using Multiple Cavity Modeling Technique Considering the Te00 Mode at the Slot Aperture

Abstract
A moment method analysis of a broad wall slot coupled crossed rectangular waveguide junction has been presented in this paper. The coupling slot is longitudinal/transverse and offset from the centre lines of the guides. The integral equations, governing the characteristics of the device, have been obtained using Multiple Cavity Modeling Technique, taking into account of the finite wall thickness and the TE00 mode at the slot apertures and have been solved using Moment Method to obtain the aperture distribution. The normalized resonant lengths/complex S-parameters have been calculated from this field distribution for different guide height/slot offsets/slot widths/slot thickness of the longitudinal/transverse slot over the frequency band. Numerical data, thus obtained, have been compared with measured/literature available/CST Microwave Studio Simulated data. The theory has been validated by the reasonable agreement obtained between them. It has been shown that, neglecting the TE00 mode at the slot apertures can adversely effect the estimation of the resonant frequency and equivalent network parameters.
