This chapter will deal with a number of topics which are relevant to the interaction between a microwave circuit and an active two-terminal element. Starting from a general description of this interaction, we will look at oscillator properties such as stability and noise (FM and AM), as well as injection locking. Some typical circuits and impedance data will be presented. We will also derive the gain-bandwidth product for two-terminal reflection amplifiers, and discuss their noise properties.
