Code package for oversized waveguides Contact: B. Plaum
A computer code package for oversized waveguides is developed at IPF.
It supports different waveguide types:
Smooth wall with rectangular cross section
Smooth wall with cylindrical cross section
Corrugated wall with square cross section
Corrugated wall with cylindrical cross section
A large number of modules are avaliable for:
Expansion of arbitrary (analytical or numerical) field patterns
into waveguide modes
Propagation of mode spectra in waveguides and calculation of the
resulting fields at arbitrary locations
Calculation of mode conversions due to diameter variation with a
scattering matrix algorithm
Calculation of mode conversion due to curvature and diameter variation
with an optimized coupled mode equation method.
Optimization of geometries for tapers, mode converters, horn antennas and bends
Analytical calculation of resulting far-field patterns from waveguide mode spectra
Fast calculation of overlap integrals
The modular design of the code allows it to be used for a large number
of design and optimization tasks. Possible applications range from low-power
systems for plasma diagnostics to MW level ECRH facilities.
