Study of the characteristic impedance of a ridge gap waveguide
Paper in proceeding, 2009

This paper presents a study of the characteristic impedance of a ridge gap waveguide. Ridge gap waveguides belongs to a new metamaterial-based waveguide technology for millimeter and submillimeter waves which emerged recently. A formula for the characteristic impedance of an ideal PEC-over-PMC ridge gap waveguide has been derived. A preliminary numerical study of the characteristic impedance of a real ridge gap waveguide where the PMC is realized by a bed of nails is also presented.
