A flexible transmission line, consisting of a thin ceramic-compounding Teflon strip, was devised by using a high permittivity LSE-NRD guide. This transmission line has the advantage of changeable shape. Low-loss performance was confirmed by measuring the transmission loss of the 180 degree bend and the S-shaped curve in the 60 GHz frequency band.
