Abstract : An unsymmetrically corrugated TE01 mode circular waveguide bend. Unsymmetrical corrugations approximately one=aurater wavelength deep are utilized to suppress energy transfer to other modes inherent in smooth wall circular guide bends. The corroguations are comprised of a plurality of adjacent internal ridges and valleys having substantially parallel walls such that the distance between the parallel walls of the internal ridges are at least twice the distance between the parallel walls of the internal valleys.
