Abstract

This paper describes the use of a helically corrugated waveguide as a dispersive medium for microwave pulse compression. The helically corrugated waveguide has a large variation of group velocity with frequency, but in a region where the group velocity remains large. Therefore this compressor does not suffer from reflections associated with cut-off scenarios at frequencies close to its operating regime and may be used in conjunction with high power wideband tunable microwave sources and amplifiers
