Abstract
The paper presents a generalized Fourier Transform pair for the analysis and synthesis of tapered transmission lines supporting a non-TEM mode. The Fourier transform pair first pointed out by Bolinder and subsequently used by Klopfenstein and others, for TEM lines, can be shown to be a special case of the present transform pair. A step by step synthesis method has been described for exact designs of matching transformers and asymmetric couplers. The theory is verified with the design and experiment on two Ka - band finline tapers.
