A numerical study of TM01-TE11 circular waveguide mode converter, with its optimized size and structure, is presented in this paper. Many factors such as spurious modes, backward wave, perturbation functions of waveguide axis or radius, phase-rematching techniques and ohmic losses are taken into account for the influence to mode converter's efficiency and bandwidth. And the dimensions of an optimized model (f0=35GHz. with input and output radius a0=13.6mm) are given.
