Gap waveguide components for millimeter-wave systems. Couplers, filters, antennas, MMIC packaging
Paper in proceedings, 2012

Design of passive components (couplers, filters and antennas) and MMIC packaging validation intended for RF front ends for microwave links at 38 GHz using gap waveguide technology have been shown. The use of this technology allows all-in-one integration of receiver, transmitter, and diplexer including the antenna into one mechanical unit. These initial designs and studies have been made at the microwave band for validation and measurement purposes, and for comparison with existing technology. They represent the first step towards the application of gap waveguides to millimeter-wave systems, where gap waveguides could have a large potential.
