This letter presents a new polarizer which has a simple comb structure inside a circular waveguide. The electrical performance of the proposed comb polarizer is optimized by a circular waveguide radius and by the physical parameters of the comb plates. This polarizer is suitable for providing good performance in millimeter-band application because of its simple structure and low fabrication cost. In our experiments the dual-band comb polarizer designed in band 1(K) and band 2(Ka) showed good electrical performance without any tuning elements.
