Compact folded Y-junction waveguide

A high bandwidth, low signal error, compact waveguide includes a conductive body including a waveguide input portion and a plurality of waveguide output portions disposed coplanar with the input waveguide portion. The waveguide further includes a common junction joining the input waveguide portion and the plurality of output waveguide portions. A septum is disposed proximate the common junction collinear with a centerline of the input waveguide portion. The waveguide further includes a plurality of iris elements disposed proximate the common junction transverse to the centerline of the input waveguide portion. The septum and the plurality of iris elements changes an impedance of the common junction to match the impedance across the entire waveguide bandwidth.
