Abstract : This report presents the results from a sseries of five radiation n environmental experiments conducted during the two year extent of this program. Included in the report are a description of the equipment and circuits used to perform the experi ments, measurement techniques employed, and a radiation effect per Peak Gamma Dose chart for all devices tested. Photographs of important test set-ups as well as of oscilloscope presentations are given to provide the reader with a better insight into the study. The majority of tests were performed under continuous wave low power (less than 1.0 watt); a limited number of tests were conducted with pulsed high power (5 kilowatts) applied to the devices under study; all power levels being in the 5.4 to 5.9 Gigacycle band. The units tested were, coaxial duplexers, waveguide duplexers, coaxial limiters, coaxial circulators, coaxial isolators, waveguide circulators, waveguide adapters, waveguide sections, klystron, magnetron, crystal detector, and various cables and connectors.
