# Operation of the Ferrite Junction Circulator

@article{Fay1965OperationOT, title={Operation of the Ferrite Junction Circulator}, author={C. E. Fay and Richard L. Comstock}, journal={IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques}, year={1965}, volume={13}, pages={15-27} }

The operation of symmetrical circulators is described in terms of the counter-rotating normal modes (fields varying as exp n/spl phi/) of the ferrite-loaded circuits. The rotating modes, which are split by the applied magnetic field, form a stationary pattern which can be rotated in space to isolate one of the ports of the circulator. A detailed field theory of the strip-line Y-junction circulator operating with n = 1 is presented. Experiments designed to confirm the validity of the rotatingâ€¦Â Expand
