A Waveguide is a structure which guides electromagnetic waves. It is a hollow conductive metal pipe used to carry high frequency radio waves, particularly microwaves.
Waveguides differ in their geometry, which can confine energy in one dimension such as in slab waveguides or two dimensions as in fiber or channel waveguides. In addition, different waveguides are needed to guide different frequencies. As a rule of thumb, the width of a waveguide needs to be of the same order of magnitude as the wavelength of the guided wave.
Accutronics offers the most comprehensive range of Waveguide Components, ranging from the most basic Waveguide Tubing, Flanges, Bends, Twist, Transitions, etc. Flexible Waveguide products are also offered, with the most popular frequencies and lengths offered from stock. Additionally we offer the customer the opportunity to provide drawings of their required Waveguide Assemblies, which can be manufactured and supplied fully-tested.
