Abstract : The first sections of the report are devoted to a discussion of the basic diode limiter concept, limiter diode characteristics and diode packaging considerations. A following section is devoted to the C-band TR concept which has been determined through preliminary investigation. In addition the diode package and a single stage C-band limiter is described. The last two sections of the report are concerned with the technical accomplishments in the Ku-band work. Several ridge wave-guide test sections have been designed and measured. Data is given for PIN diodes in these test sections with a dc bias switching mode of operation. Other Ku-band diode limiter circuits have been designed and are described in the final section of the report. (Author)
