Abstract : The patent relates to the combination of a hollow waveguide, a solid dielectric resonant cavity comprising a fused quartz member dimensioned to form a resonant cavity at a given frequency, the outer surface of said quartz member having a coating of a highly conductive material, said coating completely enclosing said quartz member except for a pair of openings located on opposite sides of said quartz member, means for fixedly positioning said resonant cavity in the hollow portion of said waveguide so that said openings are operative to couple electromagnetic energy in said waveguide into and out of said resonant cavity, said means including a conductive partition means bridging the gap between the conductive coating of said resonant cavity and the inner walls of said waveguide.
