Abstract : The linearity of group delay versus frequency in magnetostatic wave delay lines is improved by a linear variation of one of three discrete parameters in the region between the two delay line transducers. The parameter variation is applied to magnetostatic wave delay lines that have a ground plane, a magnetic garnet crystal film substrate that is plane, a magnetic garnet crystal film substrate that is spaced from the ground plane has transmitting and receiving transducers engaged to it, and a magnetic bias field. The discrete parameters varied are the magnetic bias field; the distance of the substrate. Appropriate linear variations of any one of the these parameters provides improved linearity of grouped delay versus frequency.
