Abstract : This report describes the research accomplished during the third biannual period of a three year research program dealing with advanced concepts of microwave generation and control in solids. A report is made on microwave solid state devices and circuits. Included are: GaAs Read Diodes; Amplifier Characteristics; Measurement of IMPATT Diode Amplifier Parameters; Computer Experiments on TRAPATT Diodes; High Power and Efficiency CW Transferred Electron Oscillators; Compound Semiconductor Transistor Study; Automated Network Analyzer; Submicron Gate Field Effect Transistor; IMPATT Diode Load Characteristics; and Interaction of Distributed IMPATT Oscillators. A report is also made on materials and fabrication techniques. The topics discussed are: The Epitaxial Growth of Thin GaAs Layers; Read Structures; and Electric-Current-Controlled LPE Growth of GaAs.
