The phase and gain characteristics of wideband, coaxial X band avalanche-diode amplifiers have been determined, and typical data are presented for an 11 GHz amplifier. At a gain of 15 dB, the phase linearity was less than 4°, the a.m.-p.m. conversion was less than 8 deg/dB and the phase sensitivity to current was about 0.2 deg/mA.
