Abstract : This report describes the work performed to develop a secondary reference standard for calibrating microwave power measuring instruments in the 26.5 to 40 gigacycle range. This standard is of the reflectometer type, which not only measures the microwave power actually entering the device being calibrated, but also measures the microwave power that is reflected from the instrument under calibration. Also included in the report is a description of the theoretical and experimental work performed to develop an interim Army primary microwave power standard in the 26.5 to 40 gigacyle range, which was required to calibrate the secondary reference standard.
