Radio waves whose length is less than approximately 1 meter are variously designated as microwaves, quasi-optical waves, centimeter or decimeter waves, and hyper-frequency waves. In the preceding chapter, a few oscillators were described which can produce these waves. In this chapter, additional methods of generating microwaves will be described, together with a brief treatment of their peculiarities.
