Market Overview

A waveguide is a physical structure or device that is used to guide and transmit electromagnetic waves at radio, microwave, and optical frequencies. It consists of a hollow metal or dielectric tube, or a solid dielectric material, that confines and directs the electromagnetic energy along its length. Waveguides are commonly used in microwave communication, radar, satellite communication, and optical communication systems. They offer several advantages over traditional transmission lines, including lower signal losses, higher power handling capacity, and greater immunity to electromagnetic interference. The design and dimensions of a waveguide are critical to its performance, and they are determined by the desired operating frequency and mode of transmission. Waveguides are essential components in many modern communication and sensing technologies.
