(3) Assume suitable data if necessary.


1. Answer any four :-

(a) Are TEM waves possible in circular waveguide? Justify your answer.

(b) Differentiate between TE and TM modes in a rectangular waveguide. Why is TMo1Or TM1Qmode not possible in a rectangular waveguide?

(c) What is Velocity Modulation? How Velocity Modulation is utilised in Klystron amplifier?

(d) Explain intermodel dispersion in Optical Fiber System.. .

(e) ComparebetweenLEDand LASERdiode.


2.(a) Explain with a suitable sketch the Mechanism of Propagation of an E-M wave through a rectangular waveguide.. . .

(b) Give the reasonwhy there are different modes of propagation and a cutoff freq. for a perticular waveguide having definite geometry.

(c) What is the dominant mode? What are the phase velocity and the group velocity of an EM wave in a waveguide? Explain.


3. (a) What are cross field devices? How does a magnetron sustain its os~illations using this crossfield? Assume7t modefor explainingthe same.

(b) A two Cavity Klystron is operated at 10 GHz with

Vo =1200 V, 10= 30 mA, d = 1 mm, L = 4 m and RSh= 40 KO neglecting beam loading, Calculate

(i) Input RF voltage V, for a maximum output voltage

(ii) Voltage gain (Hi) Efficiency.’


4.(a) In a H-plane Tee junction 20 mW power is applied to Port (1) that is perfectly matched to the junction. Calculate the power delivered to the load 60 0 and 75 n connected to Port (1) and Port (2).

(b) What is’a directional coupler? What are its characteristics?

(c) Differentiate between

(i) TWTA and Klystron

(ii) IMPATTdiode and Gunn diode.
