Abstract:

Elimination of voltage breakdown within the harmonic generation circuit is discussed with the resulting effects upon applied power noted. Also described is a 70 gc power divider, a new device used as a variable, high-power attenuator in doubling experiments. Data resulting from 8 to 4 mm doubling is presented as a basis for extending present methods to klystron operation. The signal and idler resonances, of the ferrite amplifier are described as magneto-dynamic modes. Experimental verification of this description is presented. Expressions are derived which relate amplifier noise figure to the input VSWR with no pump applied. Operation of the amplifier as a lower sideband upconverter is reported. Construction of a new amplifier configuration is described. Author
