Continuous Curvature Bends

When the ratio of waveguide diameter to wavelength is not too large, bends can be negotiated with low loss in continuous bends with special curvature. Some examples:

high power 30o continuous curvature bends in 31.75 mm waveguide for HE11 mode at 110 GHz

high power 30o continuous curvature bends in 31.75 mm waveguide for HE11 mode at 110 GHz

high power 90o continuous curvature bend in 44.5 mm waveguide for TE01 mode at 11.4 GHz
