Paper Abstract

Modified fused biconical taper couplers have been developed with improved power and modal uniformity characteristics. While poor power uniformity results in wide receiver dynamic range requirements, poor modal uniformity causes more subtle problems affecting the interaction between the coupler and other system components. Data are shown for 16-port transmission star couplers, giving an indication of problems that occur in systems and showing the improved performance of a modified fused biconical taper coupler.
