TC-4 Microwave Passive Components and Transmission Line Structures Committee

Mission Statement

MTT-4 provides leadership and technical support to the microwave community regarding all aspects of transmission lines and microwave passive components. This includes the operation principles, the design techniques, and the implementation technologies for various guided-wave structures and transmission lines, as well as for microwave and millimeter-wave passive components and circuits.

Field of Interest

* Transmission lines and guided wave structures
* Microstrip lines, coplanar waveguides, striplines, and slotlines
* Metallic waveguides and substrate integrated waveguides (SIW)
* Metamaterials, metasurfaces, and artificial transmission lines
* Passive microwave components and circuits such as
– Couplers
– Power dividers/combiners
– Tunable and reconfigurable passive components
