Abstract : This project involved an exploration of mutual synchronization phenomenon in coupled oscillator systems. The systems under study were comprised of microwave or millimeter-wave oscillators arranged in a one or two-dimensional array. Each oscillator delivers its power to a planar antenna structure so that the power is collected and combined radiatively, or 'quasi-optically.' The oscillators are coupled together either through radiative interactions between the antennas, or through dedicated transmission line circuits. Such systems can be used for coherent power combining of solid state sources.
