A brief review is presented of the absolute minimum loss of a two-port, mismatched lossy microwave network. This minimum loss, called the "intrinsic insertion loss" can be attained by adding suitable susceptances at the ports that will yield simultaneous bilateral network match. A measurement procedure is described and convenient graphs are presented.
