This paper describes work relating to the optimization of silicon-based, coplanar waveguide (CPW) air-bridge and bend discontinuities. Experimental results shown here verify that the return loss is improved by introducing a step-compensation into the CPW center conductor. The technique is demonstrated in the design of an asymmetric coplanar-strip Wilkinson power divider at 45 GHz.
