Micro Harmonics was just awarded a NASA Phase II SBIR contract to develop cryogenic Faraday rotation isolators in every band from WR-15 (50-75 GHz) through WR-3.4 (220-330 GHz). In the course of this research effort we will also develop room temperature isolators at WR2.8 (260-400 GHz) and WR-2.2 (330-500 GHz) as well as a line of voltage variable attenuators in the bands WR-15 through WR-8 (90-140 GHz). The attenuators will operate over full waveguide bands with a power rating near 1 W.

A special thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at the IMS in Boston last week. We exhibited a WR-4.3 isolator with 1.1 dB insertion loss! A special thanks to Keysight for loaning us the PNA and to Virginia Diodes for loaning us the frequency extenders.

Micro Harmonics has been awarded a $50,000 Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund (CRCF) grant by the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT). CIT creates technology-based economic development strategies to accelerate innovation, imagination and the next generation of technology and technology companies. Created in 1985, CIT, a non-profit corporation, plugs gaps at the earliest stages of the Innovation Continuum – commercialization and seed funding – as it helps entrepreneurs launch and grow high-growth technology companies and create high-paying jobs for the future. CRCF invests in priority research and commercialization activities through the private sector, academia, and nonprofit research institutes.

Micro Harmonics introduces a new WR-10 cryogenic isolator (75-110 GHz). Typical insertion loss is less than 0.4 dB at 77 K. Typical isolation is greater than 26 dB at 77 K. Nominal insertion loss and isolation are maintained at room temperature at 1.0 dB and 19 dB respectively. Prototypes have been rigorously tested through more than 60 cryogenic cycles to 77 K without failure. Follow this link for more information. Additional models are forthcoming.

Micro Harmonics has been awarded a new NASA SBIR contract for the development of millimeter-wave isolators optimized for cryogenic applications. The initial development will be done in WR-10 (75-110 GHz) with the ulitmate goal to expand our product line to include cryogenic options in all bands from WR-12 (60-90 GHz) to WR-3.4 (220-325 GHz).

We gave a live demonstration of our WR-3.4 isolator at the IMS exhibit in Philadelphia, June 11-14. Yes, the insertion loss really is < 2 dB typical! Many thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth and expressed interest in our products.
JUNE 15, 2018
We have successfully demonstrated a WR-4.3 isolator covering the full waveguide band from 170-260 GHz with a typical insertion loss near 2 dB.
