Metallic Plating of WR-10 Stainless-steel Waveguide

A simple procedure is described for copper plating stainless-steel WR-10 waveguide sections, up to 40 cm in length. An anode with a uniform separation from all interior walls of the waveguide allows for efficient plating.
For mm-wave experiments executed at low temperatures, it is desirable to use a stainless-steel waveguide in the refrigerator for thermal isolation and to plate the waveguide with a higher conductive metallic layer to reduce microwave attenuation. While the electroplating of metal on stainless-steel is a well-established procedure, there are...
