The Groove Gap Waveguide (GGW) may be a suitable alternative to rectangular waveguide (RWG) to implement the mm-wave components since this waveguide is formed by two separated pieces, hence avoiding the necessity of ensuring a proper metal contact, which is challenging at these frequencies. Nevertheless, the commonly used equivalence between GGW and RWG results rough, and expensive full-wave simulations are usually required, complicating the design task. This works presents a frequency-dependent equivalence between both waveguides. By using this equivalence a fast and accurate analysis the GGW can be performed with additional physical insight.
