Abstract : The report describes the research and development directed towards advancing the state of the art in the field of microwave duplexers intended for application in a side-looking radar. A three port junction circulator was developed capable of operating at a peak power level of 300 kw. Many ferrite materials were evaluated for use in this device. Single crystal yttrium iron garnet was employed as a power sensitive element in a completely solid state limiting device. Ferrite materials investigated during this program did not wholly possess both the peak power and remanent characteristics for use in the latching four port switch. (Author)
