GAS DUPLEXER (PINCH EFFECTS).
MICROWAVE ASSOCIATES INC BURLINGTON MASS
Research concerned an investigation and study of the use of various gas discharge confinement mechanisms as gas duplexers leading to the de sign of a high power microwave duplexer uti lizing magnetic fields to improve switching efficiency within the limit of a specified re covery time. The technique used is that of im posing a constant magnetic field across the dis charge and perpendicular to the incident micro wave electric field. This results in apprecia ble reductions in recovery time without any deterioration in discharge arc loss. A prototype duplexer utilizing this effect was constructed in S-band for a power level of six megawatts peak - ten kilowatts average. Author
