Waveguide Techniques

  • D. J. E. Ingram


Except for the initial experiment of Cleeton and Williams(1), all microwave spectroscopes have used a waveguide system to transmit the radiation from the source to the absorption cell and on to the detector, in contrast to optical, ultra-violet, and infra-red work, where free space propagation is employed. A brief summary of the properties of waveguides is therefore necessary in order to understand the design of actual spectroscopes.
