Title: 3-D printing of microwave components for 21st century applications
Author(s): Otter, WJ

Item Type: Conference Paper
Abstract: Additive manufacturing using 3-D printing is an emerging technology for the production of high performance microwave and terahertz components. Traditionally, these components are made by (micro-)machining. However, recent advances in rapid prototyping technology have led to its use in creating high performance and low weight RF components. In this review paper ten state-of-the-art exemplars are described, covering a wide variety of applications (absorbers, waveguides, antennas and lenses) operating over a broad range of frequencies, from 8 to 330 GHz.
