Reciprocity Relations for On-Wafer Power Measurements



Roger Marks, Dylan F. Williams


The implications of expressions relating the forward and reverse transmission coefficients of a waveguide junction derived from the Lorentz reciprocity condition are explored. The two terms in the relation, the phase of the reference impedance in the guide and a new reciprocity factor, lead to an asymmetric scattering parameter matrix when one of the transmission lines connected to the junction is lossy.
