AMC pin waveguide flange for screw redundant millimeter and submillimeter measurements
Paper in proceedings, 2016

Measurements with waveguide flanges at frequencies above 100GHz have a considerable issue with leakage due to problems with achieving good electrical contact between the opposite flanges. The higher the frequency, the higher is the requirement for full contact. However, by using an artificial magnetic conducting (AMC) flange on one side of the interface, full electric contact is not needed between the two joining flanges. The AMC is realized as a pin-surface, and the leakage is stopped by a parallel-plate stopband like in gap waveguides. This paper describes how these AMC pin waveguide flanges can be used for screw redundant measurements.
