Investigating Rectangular Metallic Waveguide Interconnects at Millimetre-wave and Terahertz Frequencies

This poster presents a general method for assessing the connection repeatability of waveguides in two bands: WR-05 (140 GHz to 220 GHz) and WM-250 (750 GHz to 1.1 THz).

The results are based on series of measurements made with Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) operating at these frequencies.

The VNAs use extender heads to provide test ports with the appropriate waveguide sizes and interfaces for the frequency ranges under investigation.
