Paper Abstract

The small signal modulation characteristics, large signal modulation characteristics and dc noise spectra on 70 micron-wide 20-element high-power phase-locked arrays of antiguides are reported. The relaxation resonance frequency at 1.5 times threshold is found to be 1.65 GHz. Large-signal pulse modulation produced no distortion to the far-field characteristics. The dc noise spectra showed a damped shot noise resonance at 1.32 GHz for a dc bias level of 1.18 times threshold.
