Microwave spectrometer

  1. Jan 9, 2008 #1
    i have a micorwave bench that operates in the X band.I want to know if i can convert it to a microwave spectrometer, with little modification,i have a gunn power supply, at the source end of the bench and a dielectric sample holder at the otherend.

    if i replace the termination next to the sample holder with a horn,and fix to the open big end of the horn a spectrograph type of thing which will be sensityive to microwaves, theni should ve able to record microwave spectra, at least in principle. but i dont exactly know what to use- to work as a specrograph to record microwaves.

    there are other difficulties also, for example, i willalso require a dispersing instrument for microwave dispersion.....
