We have set up a two-dimensional spatial field mapping system to measure graphically the quasi-free-space electromagnetic wave in a parallel plate waveguide. Our apparatus illustrates a potential application in characterizing the microwave absorbing materials. From the measured mappings of the microwave field, the visualization of spatial physical process and quantitative characterization of reflectivity coefficients can be achieved. This simple apparatus has a remarkable advantage over with conventional testing methods which usually involve huge, expensive anechoic chambers and demand samples of large size.

    One method of generating short, high-power microwave pulses is to store rf energy in a resonant cavity over a relatively long fill time and extract it rapidly. With this pulse compression technique power gain roughly equal to the ratio of fill time to extraction time can be obtained. During the...

    A cylindrical reentrant cavity is discussed that features a tunable resonant frequency. The tuning range can, in principle, be as large as a factor of 3, but the present design achieved only a 28% tuning range. Such a system could be utilized where it is necessary to tune the resonant frequency...
