This paper investigates the possibility of using layers of graphene to form primary impedance standards for millimeter-wave rectangular metallic waveguide. It is shown that standards with values of Y?, 2Y? and 3Y? can be produced by a monolayer, bilayer, or trilayer of graphene, respectively, where Y? is the characteristic admittance of the waveguide. These standards could then be used in the calibration of vector network analyzers.
