Abstract : A procedure for generalizing nodal-shift measurements to lossless n-ports was presented in this thesis. The procedure involves reducing the n-port problem by steps to a series of two-port problems. This provides a method of determining the matched network reflection coefficients. The determination of the scattering matrix for a lossless reciprocal three-port given the matched reflection coefficients was also discussed. The diagonal elements of the scattering matrix are equal to the respective matched reflection coefficients. The magnitudes and angles of the off-diagonal elements may be determined within an angle ambiguity using the orthogonality conditions. (Author)
