THE FIRST APPROACH IS TO OPTIMIZE THE FIELDS, UNIFORMITY OF THE RESONATOR TO ACHIEVE A BROAD BANDWIDTH. THE SECOND APPROACH IS TO VARY THE RESONATOR'S SHAPE OR CONFIGURATION TO ACHIEVE A BROAD BANDWIDTH. THE THIRD APPROACH IS TO DEVELOP A WIDEBAND MINIATURE FOUR-PORT LANGE COUPLER-CIRCULATOR WITH E-TEK'S MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND KNOW-HOW IS DEVELOPING HIGH FREQUENCY, BROADBAND MICROSTRIP CIRCULATORS, PHASE I INVESTIGATION WILL DIRECTLY LEAD TO PHASE II HARDWARE IMPLEMENTATION, EVALUATION AND DEMONSTRATION.
