Abstract : The results of prior Contract No. DA-36-039-AMC-01387(E) where a high power semiconductor limiter in Ku band was developed, are reviewed. Theoretical study of limiter characteristics is then made. Equivalent circuit calculations of insertion loss and isolation are presented. This is followed by a report on the experimental work during the first quarter of the program which includes the determination of an optimized limiter mount configuration, a study of reverse biasing the limiter, and an evaluation of a breadboard model limiter.
