    The synthesis of three-way H-plane rectangular waveguide combiner/divider networks using mode matching is described. Predicted and measured results for a WG16 design example are given. The technique provides insight into the combiner/divider operation and a dramatic improvement in computing time compared to previously reported designs, based on optimization by finite element analysis View full abstract»

    Resonator losses in narrow-band microwave filters can lead to an unacceptable deterioration in performance. To avoid these effects large high Q resonators are often used. Alternatively, predistortion techniques may be used to correct for the effects of losses in bandpass filters. There is little information in the available literature on predistorted bandstop filters. In this paper a brief descrip... View full abstract»

    One topic which has received little attention in the engineering literature is the optimisation of third order intermodulation products in stripline ferrite circulators biased above ferromagnetic resonance. A technique which may be used to gain insight into possible adjustments of this parameter is to construct an experimental mode chart detailing the resonant frequency variation of the first pair...

    The linewidth of a ferrimagnetic material is a measure of the magnetic loss caused by gyromagnetic resonance of the iron electrons. The authors investigate the effect of substitutions in YIG on properties such as saturation magnetisation, linewidth and Curie temperature. Initial results indicate that tin is effective in reducing linewidths and improving Curie temperature View full abstract»

    Modern microwave communication systems require, especially in satellite and mobile communications, high-performance narrow-band bandpass filters having low insertion loss and high selectivity together with linear phase or flat group delay in the passband. Usually, these criteria are fulfilled using waveguide cavity or dielectric resonator loaded cavity filters because of their low loss. However, i... View full abstract»

  • Low loss ceramic dielectrics for microwave filters

    Certain dielectric oxide single crystals display very low loss at microwave frequencies. On cooling the loss is generally observed to drop. The Q of sapphire at 10 GHz exceeds 106 at low temperatures of around 10 K. However, single crystals are expensive and the purpose of this research is to explore inexpensive, sintered polycrystalline alternatives. By very careful attention to purity... View full abstract»

  • Interconnect structures for integrated microwave and millimetre wave circuits: current status and trends

    Applications requiring high frequency IC interconnect range ever more widely: from cellular phones, indeed the entire wireless sector, to millimetre-wave automotive radars. Highly-miniaturised communications and radars require small and compact overall designs with unobtrusive antennas. Operating frequencies extend over many decades of the spectrum: from around 900 MHz to 1 THz (1,000 GHz) for sub... View full abstract»
