Abstract:

The development is reported of a very high power circulator operating at S band. The circulator is constructed using the principle of small aperture coupling between an unloaded guide and one which is gyromagnetically loaded, to produce a nonreciprocal coupling leading to circulator action. The operation of the coupler is described and desirable criteria are established for the characteristics of the ferrite loaded guide portion. The ferrite loaded guide characteristics are computed and demonstrate feasibility of operation of the circulator. Construction of the magnet, and test pieces to xplore the ferrite mode experimentally are described. A discussion is given of means to achieve high power operation without producing ferrite instability. Aut or
