The dispersion characteristics and interaction impedances of a disk-loaded cylindrical waveguide structure were investigated using theoretical, computer, and experimental techniques. Satisfactory agreement has been demonstrated between the experimentally determined values, the results obtained theoretically, and the computer-generated values using the ARGUS and SOS computer codes. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
