A millimeter wave BPF constructed from the WG mode dielectric disk resonators is presented. The design chart for the high Q WG mode resonator is obtained from Qu calculation of some WG modes. By using the design chart, high Q WG mode resonator having no influence of unwanted higher order resonances is designed. Designed resonators have different diameter and various Resonance Frequency Separation respectively. A 3 stage maximally flat BPF is constructed so that each resonator may be coupled laterally on the edge of the disk. Designed center frequency is 62.47 GHz and 3 dB bandwidth is 100 MHz. As a result, this BPF has insertion loss of 1.5 dB and some spurious responses which were existed conventional WG mode BPF are reduced considerably.
