Abstract : This report summarizes the results of a 5-year study of the reactive (or impedance) loading technique. Applications to various geometries are discussed, leading to an appreciation of both the strengths and weaknesses of this technique as a means of cross section modification and control. Small bandwidth is, perhaps, the greatest drawback to any widespread application, and of the many approaches that have been (and are still being) tried to enlarge the bandwidth, network synthesis appears to hold the most promise.
