Abstract

In A, waveguide structure 1, having transverse dimensions in the range of 50 micron to 100 micron is formed by employing a transmission medium defined by single crystal specimen 3 as a mandrel. Specimen 3 is properly dimensioned by lapping and polishing and, also, by cleaving techniques.

Small Dimensioned Waveguides

In A, waveguide structure 1, having transverse dimensions in the range of 50 micron to 100 micron is formed by employing a transmission medium defined by single crystal specimen 3 as a mandrel. Specimen 3 is properly dimensioned by lapping and polishing and, also, by cleaving techniques.

Specimen 3 is then plated with a metal 5, e. g., by electroplating, evaporation, etc., to complete waveguide structure 1. If desired, specimen 3 can be removed by etching techniques to provide a hollow waveguide structure.

In B, waveguide structure 7, having one transverse dimension in the range of one micron, is formed by employing a transmission medium defined by patterned thin film 9 deposited onto flat reflecting surface 11. Metal 13 is evaporated over film 9, the fourth reflecting wall of waveguide structure 7 being defined by reflecting surface 11.
