Kirk S Giboney: Gap-mode waveguide. February 10, 2015: US08952678 (122 worldwide citation)

In a gap-mode waveguide embodiment, an interior gap in a tubular waveguide principally condenses a dominant gap mode near the interior gap, and an absorber dissipates electromagnetic energy away from the gap mode. In this manner, the gap mode may dissipate relatively little power in the absorber com ...
