MICROWAVE DEVICE TECHNIQUES FOR AEROSPACE SURVEILLANCE.
STANFORD UNIV CA MICROWAVE LAB
This is the third Quarterly Status Report for Contract AF30602-3595 and reports work done during the period of 1 May - 31 Jul 66. The objectives of the contract are to conduct a theoretical and experimental investigation of microwave techniques with a view toward development of devices applicable to surveillance systems. The emphasis shall be primarily directed toward requirements of phased array radar systems. This investigation presently includes the following projects. 1 Thin Film Transducers 2 Parametric Amplification of Acoustic Waves 3 Carrier Wave Propagation in Semiconductors 4 Whistler Mode Propagation in Solids 5 Periodic Ferrite Delay Lines 6 Adiabatic Magnetoelastic Conversion in the Time Domain 7 Theory of the Gunn Effect 8 Guided Acoustic Waves 9 Double-ended YIG Variable Delay Line The project titled Theory of Carrier Wave Propagation has been completed and a technical report is now in preparation. Two new projects, titled Guided Acoustic Waves, and Double-ended YIG Variable Delay Line, are reported herein for the first time. Author
