Abstract : An edge-guided mode microstrip device similar to an edge-guided mode isolator having opposed straight and tapered edges along which microwave energy is adapted to travel with the exception that in the subject invention the thickness of the ferrite substrate underlying one tapered edge is abruptly changed in order to obtain mismatch threat causing energy traveling along said one tapered edge to be refelected back along the same edge oo the port whence it came. Coupling a microwave power amplifier to a port of a microwave circulator by means of a respective power reflector according to the subject invention provides a simple yet effective power combiner for microwave signals.
