Miter Bend Mirror Design for Corrugated Waveguides

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 10, 157-162, 2009
Abstract
Miter bend mirror has been designed for microwave transmission between two corrugated waveguides of the same size by iterative phase correction method. Geometrical Optics (GO) approximation has been used in our design at a frequency of 110 GHz. The equivalence principle is also adopted to forward-propagate and backward-propagate the beam onto the miter-bend mirror. The designed miter bend mirror shows a coupling coefficient up to 99.619%, much better than that of a flat mirror. The convergence rate shows that the design is very efficient with only a few iterations required.
