Abstract : The high power y-circulator was modified and tested to be used as a prototype model. Low power measurements were made to check the characteristics of this unit as compared to the experimental model. The results show that the modifications have made no change in the operation of the circulator. High voltage tests were made to determine if the new transitions and ferrite enclosure are capable of withstanding t e electric field of a high power RF source. The results show that 1 megowatt of RF power could be handled with no electrical breakdown. Measurements of the properties of a ferroelectric material to be used in a limiter for the circulator package were made. (Author)
