A mode converter for X-band located between a generator and an antenna to convert TM01 to TE11 mode with high efficiency for a high power transmitting system is presented. The proposed mode converter has extended radius and excessive curvature with symmetric structure in order to convert between two modes efficiently with short length. The measured and simulated results of the return loss, mode patterns and efficiency of the proposed mode converter with 200 mm length are provided.
