What is a Waveguide?

A waveguide is rectangular, circular, or oval “pipe” filled with air or dielectric material which is capable of conveying RF energy. The physical implementation of the structure determines the frequencies which may be transported. Many Eigen modes are possible, but the lowest order is almost always used. Equations for the calculation of these modes for rectangular waveguides are detailed below. A chart of common commercially available waveguides is included at the document’s conclusion.
