Paper Abstract

The stability of the final equilibrium states achieved between two mutually coupled microwave oscillators is assessed as a function of the initial frequency detuning, the length of the interconnection between the two sources, the coupled power, the oscillator growth rate, and the loaded Q of the cavities enclosing the sources. The model is compared to measurements from an experiment in which two high power, short pulse cavity vicators are phase-locked. The observed, final, phase-locked states are all predicted to be stable. No states that are predicted to be unstable exhibit frequency locking or phase locking.
