Abstract:

The relationship between intrinsic resonance characteristics and behavior of resonant systems coupled to transmission lines is analyzed in terms of a scattering matrix formalism. Use of the scattering matrix requires a systematic linearity in coupling between the transmission line and resonant sample. In addition, for simplification, these conditions are applied 1 the resonant modes of the sample correspond to an orthogonal set of waves propagating into and out of the sample 2 only one resonant mode is significant in a given observation. The results are developed in terms of the three-port scattering matrix, based on these simplifications in addition to parameters of the resonance. When the coupling is adjusted so as to be reciprocal and the coupling system is lossless, it is possible to make measurements of the sample behavior without computation or knowledge of the coupling parameters. Detailed procedures for making these measurements are given. Author
