Abstract : Work has started on growing single crystal yttrium-iron-garnet crystals, with the first firing already assessed. Experimentation and fabrication of sphere-forming equipment is also underway this period. The problem of polishing the rough-formed sphere has received attention, the RASOR is improved; and encapsulated spheres are derived. Work is being done on a suitable transition from type N to miniature stripline, and the first stripline etched structures fabricated for limiters.
