Abstract : A new class of low cost microwave/millimeter wave dielectric couplers are disclosed. In one embodiment, the waveguides to be coupled are formed of bundles of dielectric fibers and coupling is achieved by having a certain percentage of the dielectric fibers crossover between the waveguide bundles. In a second embodiment, the waveguides are formed of stacked longitudinal dielectric lamination sheets and coupling is achieved by crossing over a certain number of the laminate sheets from one waveguide stack to the other waveguide stack.
