Abstract : A microwave power combiner having a spherical region from which six rectangular waveguides extend oppositely along mutually orthogonal diameters. The long dimension of each waveguide cross section extends along a diagonal of a cube circumscribing the region and extends orthogonally to this long dimension of the opposite waveguide. One waveguide is an input for an injection locking signal, and four waveguides are an inputs for power to be combined in the region from oscillators controlled by the signal. No circulator is required, and the combined power may be output through the remaining waveguide or through the injection locking input waveguide. A number of the combiners may be connected with the output of one combiner serving as an injection locking input or as one power input to another of the combiners. Patent. (RRH)
