Abstract
AN RF PULSE COMPRESSION TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED AS A MEANS OF EFFICIENTLY ACHIEVING VERY HIGH PEAK POWER PULSES FROM LOWER POWER, LONGER DURATION PULSES. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY FROM A LOW POWER SOURCE (E.G. KLYSTRON) IS STORED OVER A RELATIVELY LONG PERIOD (MICROSEC) IN A HIGH Q RESONANT CAVITY. THIS ENERGY IS THEN SWITCHED OUT OF THE CAVITY IN A MUCH SHORTER TIME (< OR - 100 NSEC) RESULTING IN TEMPORAL ENERGY COMPRESSION AND THEREBY POWER GAIN. THE SWITCHING IS ACCOMPLISHED INSTANTANEOUSLY BY CREATING A LARGE INCREASE IN THE COUPLING COEFFICIENTS OF SEVERAL OUTPUT PORTS BY USING A DISCHARGE SWITCH.
