An active microwave C-section phaser is proposed which provides a flat magnitude transmission in a wide frequency band along with a frequency-dependent group delay response considering practical dissipation losses. The key lies in integrating a constant gain amplifier inside a microwave C-section, which perfectly compensates the distributed conductor and dielectric losses of the coupler, while preserving the intrinsic dispersion of the C-section. The operation of the proposed device is confirmed using numerical analysis and full-wave simulations.
