Helically corrugated waveguides for passive pulse compression

Abstract:

A method for producing short duration high power microwave pulses is proposed. A circular waveguide with a helical corrugation on its inner surface can be used as a sweep-frequency based pulse compressor which is compatible with vacuum tubes. A 2.2 metre long copper helical waveguide was used to compress a 70ns, 1kW frequency swept pulse from a conventional TWT, driven by a swept solid-state source, to a 3ns 10.9kW pulse containing 44% of the energy of the input pulse, excluding sidelobes. A ...
