Abstract

We report the design of microwave waveguide devices based on complementary media. Various kinds of waveguide devices that possess nearly 100% transmission efficiency are proposed, such as waveguide bends, splitters, connectors, and shifters. Compared with previous work on waveguide devices of low reflection and minimized distortion based on transformation optics, our transform media are homogeneous metamaterials. Electromagnetic simulations by a finite-element method on detailed examples have been performed to validate the designs and these functionalities can be close to the practical.
