The SEGMENT-FED LOOP METHOD is shown in figure 2-35C. The loop intercepts the magnetic
lines passing between cavities. The STRAP-FED LOOP METHOD (figure 2-35D), intercepts the energy
between the strap and the segment. On the output side, the coaxial line feeds another coaxial line directly
or feeds a waveguide through a choke joint. The vacuum seal at the inner conductor helps to support the
line. APERTURE, OR SLOT, COUPLING is illustrated in figure 2-35E. Energy is coupled directly to a
waveguide through an iris.
