Paper Abstract

Distributed transmission line theory is used to accurately model circular microstrip resonant structures. The model incorporates the effects of microstrip dispersion, conductor and dielectric loss, curvature, and the coupling capacitance of the feed lines. It is applied to study electronically tuned resonators and excellent agreement is obtained between theory and experiment. Microwave optoelectronic mixing is obtained by heterodyning a microwave local oscillator with a modulated optical carrier in a microstrip ring resonator on semi-insulating GaAs substrate.
