• In this paper, the single-layer slotted waveguide array antenna is designed, which consists of two par the slot plate and the structure of waveguide. The key difficulty in mass production is the realization of perfect electrical contact between the two parts. Therefore the single-layer slotted waveguide array antenna is presented with a dumbbell patch and a choke. The choke can prevent from the leakage between the slot plate and waveguide, while the choke in the adjacent waveguide incurs space dissipation. To reduce the spacing of antennas about a dumbbell patch is utilized. the 16${\times}$16 array antenna gain of 27.2 ㏈ with 45 % aperture efficiency is obtained.

• A planar waveguide model is presented for calculating dispersion characteristics with the frequency dependent effective dielectric constant in microstrip lines and results are compared by the variation of each parameter. It is compared to use a wide range of relative dielectric constants and the strip $h_{width}$strate height, W/h ratios, 0.9$\leq$W/h$\leq$2. As the result of a computer simulation, the normalized phase velocity using a planar waveguide model for each case is more closely approached to 1/$\sqrt{\epsilon_r}$ as the increasing of the frequency than the other method that has already been presented.

• In this paper, a method is presented for the design of an orthomode transducer(OMT) operating at 21/31GHz frequency bands. A square waveguide is used in the common port while the WR-34 standard rectangular waveguide is used in the straight port. The straight port is connected to the common port via a multi-stage quarter-wave impedance transformer. The side port is coupled to the common port through a slot formed along the center line of the common square waveguide. An impedance transformer is employed to match the impedance of the coupling slot with that of the WR-51 waveguide at the output of the side port. Dimensions of the OMT are iteratively optimized employing the theory of waveguide. The validity of the proposed method is verified by fabricating and testing the designed orthomode transducer.

• This paper presents the study results on a dual band feed horn for the focused reflector. A coaxial waveguide structure is attractive to avoid blockage from the feeder. The inner conductor as a hollow waveguide is designed to excite TE11 of a circular waveguide for high frequency. For low frequency, the design of the outer coaxial waveguide that propagates coaxial TE11 and prevents fundamental TEM is presented. The horn size for generation of these modes results in the degradation of performance. The return loss is improved by a capacitive iris and an inductive iris The enhanced pattern symmetry by dual mode is presented. The horn design in this paper are verified through the test.

• In this paper, a problem that occurred in the telegraphist equation established by mode conversion method is solved as analysis tapered transmission line is applied to a waveguide taper. After comparing and analyzing the taper function with variant properties, we select on of taper functions not only that is easily designed but also that have good properties. And then we propose the applicant method to design the waveguide taper and deal with the design of mode transducer between rectangular waveguide and circular waveguide. The measured results of scattering coefficients for the mode transducer fabricated with designed data are agreed well with the theoretical results and the validity of the proposed design and analysis method has been confirmed.

• We developed an optimal design interface based on VBA(Visual Basic Application) that takes advantage of API(Application Program Interface) function of commonly used EM analysis software. The developed interface is adopted for an optimal design of a septum in a waveguide tee junction using PSO(Particle Swarm Optimization) algorithm. The objective function of the optimal design is defined by $S_{11}$-parameter of the waveguide tee junction Design variables are established as position of the septum, that are changed to satisfy the design goal Using the developed design interface and PSO algorithm, the objective function converged to the smallest value, showing the validity of the proposed method. The design interface was developed using Microsoft Excel software, enabling easy control of design parameters for user. Also, various analysis parameters can be set in the Excel interface, including waveguide input mode and frequency. After completion of the design, field solutions at user-specified positrons can be extracted to the output files in complex number form.

• In this paper, a S-band coaxial waveguide-based spatial combiner is proposed. The proposed combiner consists of coaxial waveguide, impedance transformer, and finline-to-microstrip transformer. The coaxial waveguide is used as the host of the combining circuits for higher output power and better uniformity by equally distributing the input power to each element. The finline-to-microstrip transformer is designed by using antipodal antenna, and obtained low reflection coefficient by applying the small reflection theorem. The measurement results show the coaxial waveguide combiner has a maximum combining efficiency of 95%.

• Layered-type dielectric waveguide filters were designed. As the order of layers increased the fabrication process for dielectric waveguide filters which the resonator parts were connected by the lateral direction has many difficulties. The proposed structure in this report was designed based on the layered-type for the some parts of resonators. The size of layered-type dielectric waveguide filters installed on the PCB surface were reduced at 25% as compared with the usual waveguide filters by using a relative dielectric constant 22.

• The wave-propagation phenomenon in an infinite medium has been used to describe the physics in many fields of engineering and natural science. Analytical or numerical methods have been developed to obtain solutions to problems related to the wave-propagation phenomenon. Energy radiation into infinite regions must be accurately considered for accurate solutions to these problems; hence, various numerical and mechanical models as well as boundary conditions have been developed. This paper proposes a new boundary condition that can be applied to scalar-wave or horizontally-polarized shear-wave (or SH-wave) propagation problems in layered waveguides. A governing equation is obtained for the SH waves by applying finite-element discretization in the vertical direction of the waveguide and subsequently modified to derive the boundary condition for the infinite region of the waveguide. Using the orthogonality of the eigenmodes for the SH waves in a layered waveguide, the new boundary condition is shown to be equivalent to the existing root-finding absorbing boundary condition; further, the accuracy is shown to increase with the degree of the new boundary condition, and its stability can be proven. The accuracy and stability are then demonstrated by applying the proposed boundary condition to wave-propagation problems in layered waveguides.

• The 16-port feed waveguide array with inductive walls analyzed by Galerkin's method of moments are proposed for the DBS reception system mounted on vehicle. First of all, in order to verify the validity of electromagnetic analysis and design for a $\pi$-junction feed waveguide, it is designed and fabricated at DBS band. The measurement results of a $\pi$-junction feed waveguide agree well with the theoretical ones. Based on this design method, an array design for WR-90 standard waveguide is conducted. Since the width of a $\pi$-junction feed WR-90 standard waveguide is larger than a guided wave length in an array design, the difference of amplitude and phase of 8-port array are calculated 2.3 dB and 62 degrees, respectively. The bandwidth with return loss of -20 dB below is about 220 MHz and it doesn't satisfy DBS band. To solve this problem, we propose a novel design that the width of a $\pi$-junction feed waveguide equals to a guided wave length. By the proposed novel design for 8-port feed waveguide array, the difference of amplitude and phase are decreased 1 dB and 13 degrees, respectively. The broad bandwidth of 700 MHz is also realized. The size of 16-port waveguide away compared with WR-90 array is reduced about 10 cm. The measured antenna gain for the fabricated 16-port feed waveguide array is observed 24 dBi above at DBS band.
