Abstract : The patent describes a microwave power limiter having a plurality of spaced, uniformly dimensioned ferrite rods aligned along and adjacent to the side or narrow wall of a rectangular waveguide propagating the energy to be limited. The ferrite rods are separated by dielectric rods which are identical in configuration to the ferrite rods and are characterized by the same dielectric constant. A magnetic bias is applied parallel to the side or narrow waveguide wall in the vicinity of the laminated ferrite and dielectric rod structure to provide a condition of subsidiary resonance.
