Abstract:

HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING MICROWAVE PASSIVE COMPONENTS PROMISE TO SHRINK BY ONE TO TWO ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE, WHILE LOWERING THEIR LOSSES. SUPERCONDUCTING FILTER STRUCTURES, DELAY LINES AND HIGH-Q RESONATORS ALREADY HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED FROM LTHROUGH K-BAND AT TEMPERATURES UP TO 80K. REAL SYSTEMS ADVANTAGES ARE EXPECTED FROM THE INTEGRATION OF SUCH COMPONENTS INTO A COMPACT SUBSYSTEM THAT JUSTIFIES THE ADDITIONAL COOLING. A KEY COMPONENT IN MOST PRACTICAL MICROWAVE SYSTEMS IS THE NON-RECIPROCAL DEVICE IN THE FORM OF A CIRCULAR OR ISOLATOR. THIS SBIR WILL SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF SUCH DEVICES USING SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS IN A MINIMUM VOLUME AND WITH MINIMUM LOSS. THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS THE INTEGRATION ON A COMMON GARNET SUBSTANCE.
