Overview

Covers all ring resonators or cavities in various transmission lines such as microstrip, slotline and waveguide. Discusses the analysis, theory, modeling, modes, coupling methods and perturbation techniques. Describes the applications of ring circuits to measurements, filters, couplers, antennas, mixers, oscillators and microwave optoelectronics. These applications are supported by actual circuit demonstrations and performances. Includes the implementation of solid-state devices for tuning and switching the resonances.

Booknews
An introduction to microwave ring circuits, a simple and predictable component used in many applications. Begins with a general discussion of analysis, theory, modeling, modes, coupling methods, and perturbation methods. Then describes applications to measurements, filters, couplers, antennas, frequency-selective surfaces, mixers, oscillators, and microwave optoelectronics. Also considers solid-state devices for tuning and switching resonances. Of interest to graduate, research, and practicing engineers working with circuit and antenna design. Annotation c.
