Abstract : One of the objects of this invention is to provide a method of making an inexpensive waveguide window which is essentially transparent to microwave energy, which is capable of operating at high temperatures, and which is able to withstand severe shock and vibration. Another object of the instant invention is to provide a method for bonding a waveguide window of polytetrafluoroethylene across a waveguide section. A further object of this invention is to provide a method which uses an improved non-corrosive and high tensile strength adhesive and a film of polytetrafluoroethylene for making a waveguide window. Still a further object of the present invention is to provide a method of manufacturing a waveguide window employing a technique for bonding a film of polytetrafluoroethylene to a metallic waveguide section which results in an economical, airtight waveguide construction having a very low voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR).
