Title: Comparison of Sub-Millimeter-Wave Scattering-Parameter Calibrations with Imperfect Electrical Ports
Published: January 01, 2012
Abstract: We develop a metric to quantify the accuracy with which measured scattering parameters can be cascaded. We use the metric to compare four rectangular-waveguide calibration strategies at sub-millimeter wavelengths that correct for electrical-port imperfections to differing degrees.
