It is shown by calculation of the field distribution in waveguides with TE waves in the presence of both the forward and the reflected waves that the voltage induced in a pure inductive probe depends on its angular position in the same manner that a probe in a slotted line depends on its axial position. Thus, a rotatable probe consisting of a wire loop and a compensating arrangement extending through an aperture into the waveguide can be used as a standing wave detector. An instrument for S-band waveguides utilizing this principle, its advantages and disadvantages and its error are further subjects of this paper.
