RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Evanescent Waveguide Filters - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I am attempting to design an evanescent waveguide filter in XBAND. The a dimension for my filter waveguide is 0.518'' and is based on the following paper:

"Evanescent Mode Compact Waveguide Filter" by Dr Qingyuan Wang

Anyone know how to transition into this filter? Any standard quarter wave transformer from say, WR112, will have to involve a section of waveguide in cutoff thereby contributing considerable loss/attn in the passband. I've tried just butting WR112 up against the filter for my HFSS or CST or WASPNET run but have difficulty reproducing the 20 dB return loss presented in the paper.

Any input appreciated.

Jason Wrigley

Hi Jason

George Craven was one of the pioneers of evanescent mode filters and other circuit elements realized in waveguide below cut-off. He therefore has left a legacy of very many papers and books on the topic, if you search on the IN for his name I am sure you will turn up a lot of data.

I found this, for example:

http://www.physics.princeton.edu/~mcdonald/examples/EM/lewin_el_17_415_69.pdf

It discusses the equivalent circuit of the interface to an inductive section of evanescent waveguide.
