This paper presents closed-form expressions for the design of a quarter-wave transition-matching transformer. This structure takes the form of a notch or protrusion cut in the finline substrate at the waveguide-to-finline interface. The dimensions of the transformer are calculated using a homogeneous waveguide model for the partially loaded sections. The characteristics of this model are found with perturbation theory. Several transformers were designed and measured. A 5-dB improvement in return loss over a full waveguide band is typical.
