Cryogenic filters for RFI protectionThe increased bandwidth and sensitivity of the DSN maser-based receiver systems along with the increase in worldwide microwave spectrum usage dictated the need for employing additional measures to protect these systems from RFI (radio frequency inerference). Both in-band and out-of-band microwave signals at the input of the Deep Space Network (DSN) traveling wave masers (TWM) can adversely affect the maser performance in a variety of ways. Filters fabricated from superconducting materials operating below their superconducting transition temperature (Tc) possess the most potential for providing the necessary RFI protection without degrading the system performance.
