Branch Line Coupler S-Matrix | Branch Line Coupler scattering matrix

This page describes Branch Line Coupler S-Matrix (scattering matrix). It also covers basics of Branch Line Coupler along with its S-matrix.

What is Branch Line Coupler?

• It is lossless 4 port hybrid device.
• All the four ports are matched.
• The device is reciprocal and hence S-matrix is symmetric.
• Port-1 is input port, port-2 is output port, port-3 is coupled port and port-4 is isolated port.
