    Coupled transmission lines have been employed as transducers for selectively coupling between a single-mode waveguide and one mode of a multi-mode waveguide. Theoretical relations describing the characteristics of such devices and some results of experiments are to be presented. View full abstract»

    This paper describes an Audio Modulation Substitution System for high accuracy microwave attenuation measurements. In order to utilize the full advantages of a high-gain, narrow-band audio amplifier, problems of noise, hum, and instability had to be overcome. The techniques used to overcome these difficulties are discussed. The system is used over the frequency range of 240-40,000 mc and can measu... View full abstract»

  • Microstrip - A New Microwave Transmission Technique (Abstract)

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (65 KB)

    A new use is made of the classical two-wire transmission line in its application to microwave transmission. By the introduction of a ground plane, the familiar two-wire line is reduced to a planar configuration which permits important advantages to be obtained compared to present microwave techniques. These advantages include good electrical characteristics, reduction in size and weight, with corr... View full abstract»

    The discovery of microwave Faraday rotation in ferrites has opened up a whole new field of investigation and applications. An elementary explanation of the cause of Faraday rotation will be given with the aid of a model of a spinning electron, which can demonstrate ferromagnetic resonance and negative permeability. Some of the applications of ferrites to microwave circulators, modulators end phase... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the design and tests of a Microwave Interferometer, an instrument capable of measuring the time-displacement of a projectile within the barrel of a gun. A continuous record of the projectile time-displacement is obtained by using a CW-Doppler radar technique at K-band. A discussion is made of the effect of higher order modes within the gun barrel and of the effect of the leaka... View full abstract»

    In view of the important part played by rotary joints in many radar systems, it is surprising that little or nothing has been published on this subject since the appearance of the discussion by Niemann, Ehlers and Worrell, in which they give the war time status of this component. In spite of the excellent work already done on this project, however, there remained a need for a high power rotary joi... View full abstract»

    The problem of temperature compensation of microwave cavities is one that has received considerable attention. This paper will attempt to describe a method of compensation which has been used by the Microwave Development Laboratories with some degree of success. It is well to point out at this time that all the cavities described here will be assumed to be filled with a dry inert gas and hermetica... View full abstract»

    Very often in working with a waveguide transmission systems, it is necessary or desirable to couple off from the system a specified amount of the energy for various purposes. A common and practical method of accomplishing this is through the use of directional couplers and waveguide hybrid junctions. The hybrid junction, as used in this discussion, refers to a specialized waveguide directional cou... View full abstract»

    This talk concerns the design of the duplexing filters for the commercial RCA microwave communication equipment operating in the 1700 to 2000 mc region. Such equipment is extensively used by pipe line companies and electric power companies. This equipment is sold competitively both against other suppliers of microwave equipment and against suppliers of wire line facilities. Thus it must be of acce... View full abstract»

    Accurately rating the power handling capacity of a microwave component is a frequent and difficult task. In a study of this problem for the Bureau of Ships, a simple waveguide spark gap has been found to be a valuable tool and its adoption by microwave engineers as a universal standard is recommended.

    This dual-channel rotary joint consists of two pairs of rectangular waveguide terminals, a circular waveguide which transmits both channels and coupling elements between the rectangular waveguide terminals and the circular waveguide which convert the rectangular H10 mode into the circular H01 and E01 modes. If pure H01 and E01 modes can be exc... View full abstract»
