Abstract

Satellite distribution of high data rate needs wide frequency band. The millimeter waves, in particular the W-band, provide wide bandwidth and relatively low attenuation. The link transmission power can be provided only by Traveling Wave Tubes (TWTs). A new meander line topology to be used as slow wave structure for 71-76 GHz TWTs, with improved performance in comparison to the conventional one, is proposed. The new meander line compared to a standard meander line shows flatter gain and higher output power. © 2019 IEEE.
