Abstract:

The report discusses the development of microwave S- and C-band lithium ferrites with substantially improved properties, comparable to those of the more expensive ferrimagnetic garnets currently in use. Although the development of these materials has been directed at applications for latching microwave devices, they are also useful for other microwave devices. The requirements for ferrite materials in latching phasers are reviewed, the compositional factors which result in useful properties are discussed, and performance in circulators and latching phasers is reported.
