Design of Microwave Pulse Compressors Using Small Form-Factor Waveguide Cavities

Ioannidis, Z. C.; Savaidis, S. P.; Mitilineos, S. A.; Livieratos, S.; Stathopoulos, N. A.


A microwave pulse compressor (MPC) consisting of an iris, a straight waveguide section, and a T-junction can be used in order to convert a long pulse with lower power to a shorter pulse with a higher power. A significant compression gain can be achieved, provided that the system is designed precisely. The duration of the compressed pulse is proportional to the cavity length, thus imposing a constraint on the development of mobile systems. In this work, we present the circuit/transmission-line-based design methodology that we follow in order to fold the cavity (while retaining the same electrical length) by using T-junction turns. For example, we design a 1.3-GHz folded compressor and compare its performance to the corresponding one of a straight-cavity compressor. The 3-D full-wave simulations with CST Studio Suite and experimental measurements with the developed compressor confirm the accuracy of the proposed design methodology.
