Standardizing Rectangular Metallic Waveguides for Terahertz Applications



Ronald A. Ginley, N M. Ridler


This paper describes an on-going activity to develop an international document standard for defining rectangular metallic waveguides for use in the submillimeter-wave/terahertz frequency range. The IEEE's Microwave Theory & Techniques Society (MTT-S) is sponsoring the development of this standard. The MTT-S Standards Committee has set up a Working Group (PI785) that is tasked with writing the standard. This paper describes the work to date of this Working Group and the future activities that will be necessary to complete the standard.
