Investigations were made into problems related to the performance capabilities of wide band RF noise generators and RF noise measurement techniques. The inherent characteristics of 2 types of noise generators were studied and noise measurement techniques were developed which are uitable for detecting and accurately instrumenting RF noise energy generated by the devices. The devices studied were the JAN6700 microwave beam switching tube and the AF12 wide band noise generator. Several methods were investigated to increase the noise power output of the devices, however, the most promising method proved unpractical because of circuit complexity. Four methods of measuring noise were investigated and 3 were quite successful.
