This item from - IEEE Transaction - Fields, Waves and Electromagnetics - This paper presents the experimental study of microwave pulse compression using a five-fold helically corrugated waveguide. In the experiment, the maximum power compression ratio of 25.2 was achieved by compressing an input microwave pulse of 80-ns duration and 9.65–9.05-GHz frequency swept range into a 1.6-ns Gaussian-envelope pulse. For an average input power of 5.8 kW generated by a conventional traveling-wave tube, a peak pulse output power of 144.8 kW was measured corresponding to an energy efficiency of 66.3%.
