Abstract: The problem that this invention submission intends to solve is to propose a way that enables penetration of mm-wave signals through glass interface without imparing the visual characteristics that windows are intended to serve. The basic idea of the present invention submission lies with the proposal of transparent RF filters operational at mm-wave frequencies. The idea is facilitated by my earlier invention , (20200127357, Composite Substrate for a Waveguide and Method of Manufacturing a Composite Substrate) which proposes the manipulation of composite dielectric characteristics of dielectrics by interlacing dielectrics with conductors.
The crux of the idea rests on the creation of a mm-wave filter filter through interlacing glass and transparent conductors to achieve transmission of RF signals through glass surfaces. Fig. 1 shows a top-level implementation of a 3-pole filter that could be mounted on windows, such as house or car windows.
The resonators denoted by Y3 and admittance transformers denoted by Y2 are realized through the use of our earlier invention (20200127357, Composite Substrate for a Waveguide and Method of Manufacturing a Composite Substrate) to yield a mm-wave transparent filter.
