Development of quasioptical polarizational multipath diplexer has been presented. Calculation and measurement of transmission characteristics of diplexer for various angles of mutual rotation of polarizing elements have been demonstrated. The possibility of considerable improvement of diplexer characteristics by means of correction of phase front with the help of globular lens having low material permittivity has been shown. The results demonstrate rather high characteristics of the polarizational multipath diplexer, alongside with its simplicity and small dimensions.
