Abstract : The main objective of this research study is to develop an electronically controllable S-band microwave silicon window in order to overcome some of the limitations of junction-type diodes in microwave switching applications. The initial problem has been the study of the microwave transmission properties of S-band silicon windows. The results are given of the study carried out for determining the insertion losses and the absorption coefficients of silicon windows as a function of the silicon resistivity. Some initial considerations in the design of the silicon window are presented. An account is given of the experimental program which has been started for the purpose of fabricating the necessary metallic overlays on the surface of the silicon window. (Author)
