Figure 1-67C.Magic-T with input to arm b.
In summary, when an input is applied to arm b of the magic-T hybrid junction, the output signals
from arms a and c are 180 degrees out of phase with each other, and no output occurs at the d arm.
The action that occurs when a signal is fed into the d arm of the magic-T is illustrated in figure 1-68.
As with the H-type T junction, the signal entering the d arm divides and moves down the a and c arms as
outputs which are in phase with each other and with the input. The shape of the E fields in motion is
shown by the numbered curved slices. As the E field moves down the d arm, points 2 and 3 are at an
equal potential. The energy divides equally into arms a and c, and the E fields in both arms become
identical in shape. Since the potentials on both sides of the b arm are equal, no potential difference exists
at the entrance to the b arm, resulting in no output.
