A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11901602B2) discloses a dielectric wave guide cable designed for a frequency range of 110 to 140 GHz. The cable comprises a tubular core made from a material with a specific permittivity, surrounded by a cladding with a lower permittivity. An inner layer within the core, made from a material with higher permittivity, includes a coating that creates a bandgap structure for field confinement within the core. The design aims to optimize performance within the specified frequency range.

Additionally, the patent includes various claims related to the materials used in the cable, the dimensions of the core and cladding, and the structure of the inner layer. For example, the cladding can be made from foamed materials like polyethylene or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, while the inner layer may contain fillers with higher permittivity. The cable may also have a protective jacket, an outer coating of conductive material, and a specific thickness for the inner layer based on operating frequency and permittivity. The design variations, including circular or polygonal cross-sections for the core, cladding, and inner layer, offer flexibility in manufacturing and customization for different applications.
