Defining [w.sub.TM01] as the resonant frequency for TM01 evanescent mode, it can be obtained when the capacitive reactance and the equivalent input impedance [Z.sub.inTEM01] are equal.

If the shunted capacitor's Q becomes <1, the capacitive reactance has little effect."
The converse is also true where the capacitive reactance of the output impedance of the amplifier at low gate bias (-1 V) is canceled by the inductive reactance of the transformed varactor diode impedance at 15 V.
Series capacitiors have been added to long transmission lines to improve their impedance--the capacitive reactance offsetting the line inductance.
This ratio causes to appear a capacitive reactance between the line and ground that increases the reflection.
capacitive reactance decreases with the increase in frequency therefore, an overload due to high harmonics is a key factor).
This novel miniaturization technology uses a below-resonant monopole which possesses a capacitive reactance and a below-resonant loop which has an inductive reactance.
