Abstract : A brief description is presented on the problems encountered with RF impedance measurement equipment and klystrons. Results are described on the conversion loss, crystal noise ratio and RF impedance of gallium arsenide - phosphor bronze diodes in an electroformed wave-guide mixer mount. A method is presented for observing the RF rectification characteristic of a diode while it is being formed. Data on variable waveguide shorts is compared which results in a finalized selection for future experimental mixers. Eutectic bonding and solder mounting of germanium, gallium arsenide and silicon to metal support posts are described. (Author)
